New Delhi: Six people transporting buffaloes from Haryana were thrashed by a mob in outer Delhi, police said on Saturday.

Police said they received a call around 8pm on Friday that people stopped vehicles full of buffaloes near a CNG pump in Jharoda Kalan area.

A team reached the spot and found six vehicles. The locals had stopped them and thrashed the drivers. The locals also released all the buffaloes.

The police managed to control the situation and disperse the mob. The drivers have been taken to hospital.

The drivers have been identified as Ali Jaan (40), his brother Salim, Jan’s son Shaukeen (26) and Dilshan, Saif Ali (15) and Kaala (32). All are a resident of UP’s Ghaziabad district except Kaala, who is from Bulandshahr district.

Sources said all the drivers received minor injuries except for Jaan who was severely beaten up. All the rivers were discharged at night from the hospital.

They were transporting some 85 buffaloes when they were attacked. Police have registered an FIR under IPC sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint), 379 (theft), 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees).

An eyewitness, Raees, told CNN-News18, “We were coming from Haryana side. We were stuck in jam. Suddenly a group of 15 people came from behind and started thrashing us, they also broke the mirror of the vehicle. The vehicles had buffaloes in it. We keep supplying it. It happened for the first time in Jharoda but prior to it we were thrashed twice in different areas in Delhi.”
On being asked whether they had legal transit paper to transport cattle, Raees said they are in this business since a long time. They buy cattle for sale in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. For the last few years, they have been facing issues in transporting cattle.

Police said they are investigating the matter further. They are also looking into the fact whether they had legal transit papers.
