Tougher law for cow killers

Piyush Srivastava, TT, Lucknow, June 6: The Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh has decided to invoke the National Security Act and the Gangster law against those involved in cow slaughter and trafficking of milch cattle to other states, reviving an old order that was rarely implemented.
An order issued today by Uttar Pradesh police chief Sulkhan Singh to all district chiefs of police said: "NSA and Gangsters Act is to be brought into play against those involved in cow slaughter and trafficking of milch cows for slaughter."
A similar order had been issued by the Akhilesh Yadav government in 2014 under pressure from cow vigilantes within the then ruling Samajwadi Party, but was never followed on the ground.
Slaughter of cows is already banned in the state under the Uttar Pradesh Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1955. Transportation of cows or milch cattle outside the state for slaughter is also prohibited. It is a non-bailable offence and the accused can be put in jail for up to two years.
Invoking the NS Act would empower the police to detain anybody for three months or more to prevent them from "acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of the state or from acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order".
Under the Gangster and Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act, the police can book a person for being part of a gang listed in police records and summon such a person for personal attendance at the local police station for questioning or take in remand for 60 days.
Courts grant a maximum of 14 days' remand to the police in normal cases.
DGP Singh has also asked the district police chiefs to check the activities of vigilantes and register FIRs against them, saying "they cannot take (the) law into their hands".
