Last Updated: Sunday, November 27, 2011 - 10:29

New Delhi: Cow slaughter is illegal and the offender is liable for prosecution even if there is no proof that the house where it took place was not owned or not in
possession of the accused, the Supreme Court has ruled.

A bench of justices AK Ganguly and JS Khehar passed the ruling quashing a Punjab & Haryana High Court judgement which took a contrary view that in the absence of evidence of the offender`s ownership of the premises, no illegality was made
out.
