Varsity spokesman clarifies that it is a common practice in India and abroad to refer to buffalo meat also as beef.
A preliminary probe has found “no evidence” to suggest that cow meat was served at the Aligarh Muslim University’s college canteen as was claimed by some right wing groups, police said.
“A police team led by the Station House Officer, Civil Lines Police Station, visited Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College’s canteen immediately after receiving complaints by some right wing organisations that beef was being served there. However, the team found no incriminating evidence whatsoever to suggest that any banned food item was being served in the canteen,” Senior Superintendent of Police K. Ravindra Gaur said.
