Cattle Syndicate Continues Unabated in Assam
The cow smuggling continuing unabated in Assam and fresh new cases have been reported every day from different parts of the state.
In a recent case in Kukurmara area of South Kamrup, a truck carrying cattle has been seized. Locals of Kukurmara seized the truck bearing No AS01GC-8538 and handed over to police. Kukurmara police have detained two persons including the driver of the truck for interrogation.
Police detained the owner of the cattle Najar Ali and driver Aaiban Ranghang who hails from Nalbari and Meghalaya respectively.
On the other hand, cattle smuggling is taking place in the state through waterways in Upper Assam and in a fresh new case on Sunday, more than 30 cattle have smuggled to Bangladesh by a boat with registration no AS23CC1676 from Amarpur Ghat in Sadiya.
The cattle smugglers have absconded with the cows when the Bir Lachit Sena, Sadiya unit went to grab the smugglers. It has been alleged by Bir Lachit Senas’ that although they have reportedly informed the police about the cattle syndicate that is going on, the police has not given any interest in the issue for which the cattle smuggling is still continued in the state.
It may be mentioned that, earlier the cattle were being carried via Bogibeel Bridge but after some local organizations repeatedly stopped them from being carrying the cows, the smugglers used to show them pistols and smuggled the cows via waterways.
Meanwhile, when the people of Assam are suffering from the devastating flood, there are some miscreants who took advantage of the flood and smuggled cows in large quantity through Indo-Bangladesh border in Dhubri and South Salmara. It may be mentioned that police have recovered 67 numbers of cattle from the border area. Officer-in-charge of South Salmara, Abul Kalam Azad said that the cows have been recovered during an operation after they were being informed by sources. He also said that they have arrested three persons in connection to cattle syndicate.
