Bhopal: A former office bearer of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and nine of his relatives have been booked under the tough National Security Act (NSA) for “slaughtering cow and storing beef in their house” in Madhya Pradesh.
Anwar Mev was an office bearer of the BJP's Minority Cell before he was expelled from the party.
The arrests were made on suspicion that Mev and his relatives were involved in a slaughtering of cow and storing beef in their house in MP's Dewas area, according to a report in India Today.
The development comes after Arunachal Pradesh Governor JP Rajkhowa cited “cow slaughter” as one of the reasons for recommending President's Rule in the state, which was ruled by Nabam Tuki-led Congress government.
