Leaving the BJP in Madhya Pradesh red-faced, police have arrested a party leader and four of his relatives for allegedly slaughtering a cow at his home in Tonkkhurd, about 30km from Dewas.
Anwar Mev alias Anna, who was associated with the party’s minority cell in the district, was “quickly expelled” for “the major crime” by the BJP on Thursday, a day after a raid at his house led to the recovery of beef, said a party leader.
Two more accused were taken into custody on Thursday with the police looking for the remaining three accused. Those arrested, including Anwar, were sent to judicial custody by a local magistrate on Thursday.
Investigating Officer Vijay Sisodia told The Indian Express that Anwar and nine others, including eight relatives, were booked under the state’s anti-cow slaughter law and relevant sections of the IPC and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals law.
