NEW DELHI -- Rizwan and Mukhtiar, two men suspected of transporting beef, were made to eat a mixture of cow dung, cow urine, milk, curd and ghee, almost two weeks ago in Haryana, The Indian Express reported today.
The newspaper provides a shocking account of the men being forced to eat this concoction, with volunteers of the Gau Rakshak Dal urging them to "finish the gobar quickly," and shouting slogans such as "Gau Mata Ki Jai” and “Jai Shri Ram."
In the video of this gruesome episode, which the newspaper has accessed, volunteers are seen offering water so that the two men can swallow this dreadful concoction, and eventually they both end up throwing up.
Last year, Haryana made cow slaughter punishable with rigorous imprisonment up to 10 years, and a fine of Rs 1 lakh.
Dharmendra Yadav, president of the Gurgaon Gau Rakshak Dal, told The Indian Express that volunteers had intercepted a vehicle transporting “700 kg of beef from Mewat to Delhi” on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway.
“We had to chase the car for 7 km before we finally managed to stop them near the Badarpur border,” Yadav told newspaper.
“When we caught them, they had 700 kg of beef in their car. We made them eat the panchgavya to teach them a lesson, and also to purify them,” he said.
While Rizwan and Mukhtiar were arrested for transporting beef, the local police personnel said that they did not know about incident in which the two men were made to eat cow dung.
"If this video is genuine, this calls for a case," Sube Singh, the Public Relations Officer for the Faridabad police, told The Indian Express.
