UP Police was attacked by villagers when they went to arrest a Muslim village headman accused of cattle smuggling, reports NavBharatTimes. The incident occurred in Usiya village, Dildarnagar police station area, Ghazipur district of East UP.
The unruly mob claimed that as the headman, Yusuf Khan, was observing Roza (fasting during Muslim month of Ramzan), the police could not arrest him. Police had caught the accused and put him in their jeep, when the mob started pelting stones and snatched him away from police custody. They then pushed the police jeep into a dry canal bed. The mob also obstructed a railway line, causing a passenger train to stop for more than half an hour.
The police party had to flee to save their lives. Heavy police force was called in from other parts of the district to control the situation.
In another incident which shows the terror of cattle smugglers in UP, a vehicle driven by smugglers crushed a police constable in Agra on Saturday night.
The matador driven by cattle smugglers broke through 2 police checkposts, before it ran over constable Amjad. Police chased the vehicle but was unable to catch the smugglers.
Such cases occur routinely in North Bharat and other parts of the country. The reality is that cattle smugglers are ruthless, often hand in glove with other criminal elements, and pose a grave danger to law-abiding citizens and police.
Yet, if any of these desperate, hardened criminals gets killed in an altercation with villagers or police, the left-liberal elites in media and intelligentsia immediately take up cudgels on their behalf, magically transforming smugglers into ‘innocent dairy farmers’ and shifting the blame on the so-called intolerance of cow-adoring Hindus.
Such distortion of the public narrative only emboldens such criminal elements and also plants doubt in the mind of law-enforcement, which fears getting caught in a legal-media wrangle if they take the required action against the cattle smuggling mafia.
