Indore, Jul 15: Two persons were arrested Sunday night for allegedly transporting beef in a four-wheeler here in Madhya Pradesh, police said Monday.
The two accused, picked up from Kesarbagh Road under Rajendra Nagar police station limits, were identified as Rameez (23) and Imran Gamu (26), both residents of nearby Mhow tehsil, Inspector Sunil Sharma said.
Sharma said a person accompanying the duo managed to flee.
The police officer denied reports appearing in a section of the local media that the two were thrashed by a crowd present at the spot.
“A veterinarian examined the seized meat and said it was that of cow and buffalo. The two have said they got the beef from a Mhow slaughter house. We are probing the claim,” he said.
They were booked under relevant provisions of the Madhya Pradesh Cow Progeny Slaughter Prevention Act, 2004, Sharma said.
