10 cows, locked up in Madhya Pradesh school by villagers for destroying crops, die of starvation


A heart-wrenching incident has come to light from Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior where more than 10 cows were killed allegedly by villagers after they destroyed crops.

The cows were confined in a room of a government school in Gwalior village, without food and water, and were left for dead. After a week’s time, when the cows were dead, the villagers took them out and brought a JCB machine to bury them. It was at the time of burial that the incident came into focus.

As soon as people got to know about the incident, the administration got involved. The Sub Divisional Magistrate and Police immediately reached the spot and seized the JCB machine. Fearing interrogation, the operator of the JCB machine fled the spot. He was later caught by the police.

When the cow vigilantes got wind of what happened, they staged a blockade, demanding an investigation into the matter. Even after the SDM and other authorities assured action, they were not ready to leave.

After much ruckus, an FIR was filed against the JCB operator and unidentified persons in the matter.

The school was open on days when the cows were confined inside. None of the teachers or the students informed anybody.

SDM Raghavendra Pandey said the bodies of the cows have been dug out and will be sent for post mortem. He assured strict action against the accused after investigation is completed.
