A Bengaluru woman was brutally thrashed by a 100-member mob for reporting illegal cow slaughter to police and trying to rescue the animals from the slaughterhouse. Nandini, along with a couple of friends, was driving by Avalahalli area near Tippu Circle in Bengaluru’s JP Nagar when she spotted some suspicious activity. Nandini says that her friend saw cows being taken to a secluded lane in the area and being slaughtered.
Nandini and her friends went to Thalaghattapura police station around 6 30 PM and lodged a complaint.
Police assured her they will take necessary action. Nandini also went with police to show the location.
“Two constables got into my car (Innova). When we reached the lane where cow slaughter was going on, I could see crowds there. I thought it could be people gathering seeing police vehicles. Assuming there would be police inside the lane, we went inside. There, I was shocked to see that we were alone. Not one cop was there. The mob got into a frenzy and hurled bricks at my vehicle. They shouted pro-Pakistan slogans and continued raining stones at my car from all sides. I somehow managed to get myself out of these. All this happened around 8 30 PM. Window panes of my car shattered and my right shoulder was injured,” she added.
Former chief minister of Karnataka BS Yeddyurappa condemned the violence on Twitter. He said, “Condemn the brutal mob-attack on the woman who exposed illegal cow slaughter. This violent attack today in Bengaluru is another proof law and order breakdown under Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah.
