Cows die due to lack of fodder, water in 'gaushala' at Hoshangabad, MP cops register case
HOSHANGABAD: Several cows died due to the lack of fodder and water in a 'gaushala' in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh.
The cows were lying dead when people entered the place that was filled with stench.
The carcasses were lying in the campus. After an employee left, no one had taken care of the bovines.
Loals said that as the cows didn't get fodder and water, they died of starvartion. A video that shows the horrific condition inside the Hathnapura gaushala was also shared.
The residents said that earlier too the cows didn't get due attention and after Govind, an employee, left on June 2, there was no one to take care of the cows. For four days the cows remained hungry and this led to the deaths. At least, fnine carcasses were found though the claim as per the viral video was that the figure could be higher.
The director of the Sridadaji Gausewa Sadan, Sujit Gaur, has been booked for cruently against animals. His registratio would also be cancelled, said authorities. Officials said that a few months ago the bill for fodder was paid too but cows were not getting attention--fodder or medication. [June 6, 2021 NewsBits.in]
