All the three persons were residents of Rohtas district.

The illegal slaughterhouse was sealed following the seizure of a truckload of meat on Thursday. The truck was carrying meat from the illegal slaughterhouse to Muzaffarpur.

"We have sealed an illegal slaughterhouse functioning in Ranisagar village for years. Three persons were arrested under relevant sections of the law for running the illegal slaughterhouse", District Magistrate Sanjeev Kumar said.

"Three others are absconding," he added.

Raids were being carried out to nab the other three abconding operators of the slaughterhouse, he said.

Kumar said that a police contingent, led by the Deputy Superintendent of Police Dayashankar, has been stationed in the village as a precautionary measure in view of tension prevailing in the village and its surrounding areas.

Locals had intercepted the truck at Shahpur bazar on Thursday.
