Rajasthan authorities demolish homes, vandalise crops on 44 acres of land, accusing Muslims of illegal beef sale

Rajasthan authorities demolished 12 houses of Muslims in Kishangarh Bas and eradicated mustard and wheat crops on 44 acres of land over allegations of cow slaughter in Rundh Gidawada village in Mirzapur of Alwar district on Monday.

Throughout the operation, high-ranking officers and personnel from various departments, including the Police Department, Revenue Department, Electricity Department, and Forest Department, were on-site as crops were demolished using bulldozers and tractors.

Furthermore, the electricity department has severed power connections to the residences of the accused.

The police have filed a suo-motu First Information Report (FIR) against 25 Muslims, accusing them of participating in what the police refer to as an ‘illegal cow-slaughtering racket’ and ‘beef sale,’ as reported by Live Hindustan.

Four police personnel, including an Assistant Sub-Inspector, a head constable, and two beat constables, were found to be involved in the alleged sale of beef. They have been suspended.

Eight Muslim men have been arrested under the State’s Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act, 1995, invoking sections 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 of the RB Act. The arrested are Ratti Khan, Sahun, Mausam, Haroon, Jabbar, Aleem, Aslam, Kamil, and Saddam.

Kashif Zubery, a lawyer in the region, said to Maktoob, “An ‘illegal’ beef market was operating in Kishangarh Bas, where the police destroyed crops. Cows were being slaughtered and sold concurrently, with both locals and police allegedly involved.”

“On Sunday, a local newspaper did a sting operation by faking to be their customers and they were accompanied by the police, where those involved were caught red-handed. A video of the same also surfaced on the social media sites”, said Zubery.

Live Hindustan reported that all the men have fled the village due to police action and only women and children are there in the entire village.
