New Delhi: Tension arose in Bulandshahr district's Arnia village after the carcasses and remains of seven cows, which had allegedly been slaughtered, were found near a small stream near the village. Police have registered an FIR in the matter and assured locals that action would be taken against the culprits.

Bulandshahr District Magistrate (DM) AK Singh spoke to News 18 and confirmed the news. "The discovery was made on early Wednesday morning. Some locals found the remains of what seemed to be cows. A police team rushed to the spot and collected the remains. Prima facie, they appeared to be cows and we have deduced that these remains belong to seven separate cows. This seems to have been a large operation. These cows were slaughtered and then dumped out in the open,” he said.

The DM added, “Police have seized the remains of the cattle and registered a case. The locals were getting agitated and there was a lot of shouting but soon, senior officials from the police and the administration reached there to pacify them. As of now, the situation is under control. We also requested locals not to link this crime to any particular community as that would lead to communal tension. Those responsible for this crime will be booked under the stringent National Security Act (NSA). We will also act against any officials or cops who may have been either complicit in this crime or it not remained vigilant. A crime of this scale could not have happened without the ignorance of some officials. All those responsible will be brought to justice.”
