Cow Vigilantes from U.P. Arrested by Punjab police


PATIALA: The Punjab police in a crackdown on self-styled cow vigilantes, have arrested Gau Raksha Dal chief Satish Kumar from Uttar Pradesh, a few days after he was booked for sodomy, rioting, extortion among other charges. Two other accused, Arun Kumar and Gauri, from Vrindavan in U.P, where they were hiding were also arrested by the Patiala police. Mr. Rajinder Singh Sohal, Superintendent of Police, Rajpura, said that, “We have arrested three accused on Saturday from Vrindavan. Two other accused — Bablu and Gurpreet — are still at large, and we hope to arrest them very soon”, he said. The Patiala police had lodged a case on August 6, two years after a video went viral showing Gau Raksha Dal members brutally thrashing people. A case under Sections 382 (having made preparation for causing death), 384 (committing extortion), 341 (wrongfully restraining any person), along with Sections 148 and 149 of the Indian Penal Code was registered. Satish was also booked under Section 377, which criminalises unnatural sex, after a youth from Saharanpur alleged that he was abducted and sodomised by Satish’s goons. Custody Mr Sohal added, “The local Rajpura court has sent them to one-day police custody. We will demand their further remand”.  The victim from Saharanpur had told a judicial magistrate that Satish, Bablu and few others had forcibly taken him to a cow shelter in Rajpura where he was sodomised.]]>
