Apr 21 2014 (11:54)   27 Bullocks Rescued from Howrah-bound Train

Around 27 bullocks were rescued from an Express train en route to Howrah at Cuttack railway station due to intervention of Bajrang Dal activists who alleged illegal transport of animals for slaughter in violation of laws.
The activists led by Nilagiri MLA and BJP MP candidate from Balasore Lok Sabha seat Pratap Sarangi halted the Howrah-bound Hyderabad-Hatia Express at the station at around 8.15 am. They found the bullocks crammed in a wagon latched to the tail end of the train.
As tension prevailed with the workers squatting on the tracks to prevent
onward movement of the train, the Government Railway Police (GRP) and RPF officials seized the animals. The train was let off without the bogey as the animals were shifted to the Gosala at Choudwar.
Sarangi said the animals were transported illegally without any document. Further, they were being taken in extremely cruel conditions in violation of animal protection laws like the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, Cow Slaughter Act and the Transport of Animals Rules, 1978, he alleged.
“We were informed by our Andhra Pradesh unit about the illegal transport of bullocks to Howrah for slaughter. We found the animals in cruel and pitiable conditions inside the bogey.
They were packed inside in asphyxiating conditions without any ventilation or food and water,” Sarangi said.
As per the Transport of Cattle Rules, no wagon should carry more than six cattle and the average space between animals should not be less than two square metres.
Each consignment should bear a label in bold red letters displaying name, address of the consignor and consignee along with the details of the animals and provisioning of food and water for them. The wagons should have proper ventilation.
“Around 27 bullocks were found inside the wagon. A case has been registered by the GRP Cuttack and three persons have detained in the connection. The animals were sent to the Gosala at Choudwar after being seized,” ACP Trinath Mishra said.
