Puttur: Illegal transportation of 700 kg beef – Three arrested

Daijiworld Media Network - Puttur (SP) 

Puttur, Aug 16: The police personnel of the town station here took into possession a vehicle in which beef was being transported illegally. They also confiscated 700 kg beef found in the car. They had to chase the vehicle before they could intercept it. 

The arrested persons have been identified as Mustaq (50), resident of Muneera Manzil at Karbala Road, Kudroli Mangaluru, Taufiq (26) from Kalladka Golthamajalu, and Mohammed Kabir (40), resident of Kalladka-Vittal Road. 

The police had got information that beef was being transported in a white Mahindra Xylo vehicle that was moving from the direction of Uppinangady towards Puttur. Town station police inspector, Thimmappa Naik, and a constable waited for the vehicle near Kemmayi. When the suspect vehicle reached the spot the police signalled it to stop. Those in the vehicle overlooked the police directions and sped towards the town. 

The police gave the vehicle a hot chase and succeeded in intercepting it near D G Bhat Compound on the road leading to Parladka from Mahamayi temple road. During the scrutiny, they found beef inside the vehicle. They got to know that it was being taken to Mangaluru from Belur. The accused revealed that they had information about the presence of police check post at Bollar in Uppinangady. Therefore they had planned to reach Puttur via Nekkilady and then drive their vehicle to Mangaluru. 

700 kg beef worth Rs 1.25 lac, a Xylo car worth about five lac rupees, three cell phones in the possession of the accused, and two plastic tarpaulins used to pack the beef, totally worth Rs 6,35,500 were confiscated. 

The police have filed cases stating that the accused had prepared beef by stealing cattle, violation of registration certificate conditions, and driving the vehicle recklessly at high speed among others.

    Prima facie, this looks like an illegal arrest. Transport of beef is not prohibited by any law. So essentially, there is no such thing as "illegal transport of beef" at least in Karnataka. Beef isn't cocaine. Only cattle slaughter has restrictions (and not fully prohibited). To arrest them purely on the premise that the cattle which the beef was obtained might be stolen is to make a complete mockery of the law. This looks like victimization more than anything else

    Perhaps it should have been transported in a temperature controlled container.

    The DC or any authority that is related to this should issue beef slaughter licenses in every city according to the number of people. Catching the transport is not the solution. This will continue as long as you are not issuing new licenses. You are doing a big blunder if you think not to issue new permits.

    Thousands of tons of beef is exported and we the tax payers are deprived of eating beef. I don't understand what these IAS IPS people are doing.

    I don’t think these guys are putting their life in risk by doing this kind of business for sake of just 1 lac…!!

    Something is fishy … There is planed game going on as someone dedicated/ Appointed for this kind of game..
    Now the person is doing this kind of game /plan is heavily paid by (XYZ).
    And the main person himself guiding everything like hiring these kind of people / doing theft/ transporting it etc. and doing this kind of job these people are paid (this could be more than example 1lac.. ).

    and to give the information to police the main person himself involved in it …

    if at all these people go-to jail or if any case has been filed against them … (these all taking care by main person .. like if arrested realising them, if any fine imposed .. paying that fine etc)

    These all just planed political gimmick … that it ….(This will go on and on … for decade) …..

    Pilfering n smuggling of cattle, has become a scourge, daily routine affair !! Demand, has outpaced supply, due to rampant, explosive, demographic changes, in the entire district !!!! Media should now stop, reporting such daily events.... In doing so, ignites distrust, contempt, passion and hatred..... Dakshin Kannada district, has become a flashpoint, tinderbox, a mere spark, will be catastrophic for the entire state !!!!!!!!!

    We actually thinking a new law on this earth to curb illegal transportation. Punishment under shariah law won't bear any fruit for them. Better we send them to waynaad and leave them there itself as now a days landslide are much. Apart from which no other solution. Grill trio in such a way that they will inform all illegal activities conducted in there life.

    There are many vehicles with fake number plates.no number plates, temporary number plates etc. Recently I saw a Honda Brio with number plate mentioning "Registered", how is it possible ? Honda has discontinued production of Brio. I have reported it to the police.There should be multiple check points in the city for checking vehicle registration details as such vehicles are used for illegal activities.

    Mostly the cattle sellers always deceive the buyers once they move from the destination.
