Mangalore, Jun 21: The activists of Bajrang Dal on Friday June 20 night waylaid two lorries that were transporting over 30 cattle from Punjab to Kerala and handed them over to the police.
However, for the Bajrang Dal activists, it was an anti-climax of sorts after it came to light that the cattle transporters possessed permit letters issued by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).
Kebal Singh and Sukka Singh were transporting over 30 cattle in two lorries from Ludhiana in Punjab to Kerala with the permission of VHP.
When the lorries were passing through Mangalore, activists of Bajrang Dal noticed them and began to follow on bikes. One lorry was waylaid at Netravati bridge while the other was stopped near Kotekar.
On questioning, the drivers produced a letter from VHP granting permission for the transportation of the cattle.
The two lorries were nevertheless taken to Ullal police station, where the drivers were questioned and sent on their way.
