.........BHUBANESWAR: Though two days have passed since a dairy firmís employees and railway staffers were assaulted by self-proclaimed cow vigilantes at Bhubaneswar railway station, the Government Railway Police (GRP) is yet to arrest the accused.
The GRP has registered a case under multiple Sections of the IPC and Section 174 (A) of the Railway Act on the basis of the footage from the CCTVs mounted on platform no 2.
However, the inability of the railway police to act against the miscreants has been baffling. The cow vigilantes had brutally attacked the station manger, train driver and employees of Vertex Agritech who were legally transporting the cows.Contacted, GRP SP Sanjay Kaushal said the footage is being verified and action will be initiated against whoever is found guilty.The rescued cattle have been accommodated in a local club in the City.
The railway officials are coordinating with their counterparts in Kolkata to shift the cows to Guwahati where they had been originally booked.
