Kendrapara: A mob torched two vehicles and damaged several trucks in protest against unlawful transportation of cattle near Silipur traffic junction on the Paradip-Daitary Expressway on Sunday.

Before the violence, the mob intercepted four cattle-laden trucks and blocked road for over four hours saying that police did not take any action as the Marshaghai police station was a stone’s throw away from the spot, police said.

The mob was pacified after the local block officials announced to shutdown the nearby bi-weekly cattle market.

Four trucks, carrying over 100 cattle, were seized, but the traders fled. The rescued cattle were handed over to local panchayati raj institution.
