In the wake of a mob violence in Bulandshahr allegedly over illegal cow slaughter, the administration in this western UP district has asked officials to keep a check on illegal slaughtering even as prohibitory orders remain in place.
Two days ago, section 144 of CrPC (that prohibits assembly of more than four persons at a spot) had been imposed in the district till December 26, keeping festivals and exams in view.
Senior Superintendent of Police Upendra Agarwal said that all circle officers have been instructed to keep extra vigil on Thursday, the 26th anniversary of the demolition of Babri mosque in Ayodhya. Intense checking will be initiated in sensitive areas of the district, he said.
