Mob Attacks Animal Rights Activists Trying to Rescue Cattle in Karnataka

Nandini and her friends asked the cops to take immediate action.

One of the victims, a 45-year-old software engineer with Wipro, Nandini Neeraj, and her friend Rijil, 33, were on the outskirts of Bengaluru on Saturday when they saw a few cows being illegally taken to a slaughterhouse. Instead, a mob of over 100 men allegedly started throwing stones at their auto.

"We later returned to the police station and filed another complaint around 11.45 pm".

They managed to drive out of the area and lodge another complaint at Thalaghattapura police station where an FIR (295/2017) was registered against a mob for rioting, unlawful assembly, voluntary causing hurt, using criminal force to outrage the modesty of woman. "I have lodged another complaint but they have watered down the IPC sections", Nandini told India Today. Nandini was getting no response from the police and made a decision to went ahead herself with a co-complainant and two police constables in her auto since patrolling cars weren't accessible at that time.

"When we entered the narrow lane leading to the room (where the cattle were allegedly taken) we were shocked to find that there was no police. The mob got into a frenzy and hurled bricks at my vehicle", Nandini told India Today. The victim has been identified as Nandini, who also mentioned the police negligence as she felt "trapped" in the vindictive assault where dreadfully no action was taken against the notorious gang. "Whoever attacked us had the intention to kill us", said Nandini.

When they went back to the station, the officer in-charge accused them of having created a law and order problem, she added.

Police on Sunday said they are yet to arrest anyone in connection with the case.

A senior officer at the Thalaghattapura police station, who did not want to be named as he was not authorised to speak to the media, said the mob pelted stones because Nandini's auto had hit a petty shop when she had gone back. "We have rescued three cows from the spot".

Nandini suffered head injuries and fractured her hand.

Two women animal rights activists were injured when a mob of over 150 people assaulted them as they tried to rescue cattle from an illegal slaughterhouse at Avalahalli near Talghatpura in Karnataka on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, former Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa condemned the violence on Twitter.
