News Tech: More than 50 cows died after water from a river in spate flooded a gaushala (cow shelter) in Madhya Pradesh’s Rajgarh district, an official said on Friday.
The cows got trapped and died when water from Ugal river nearby entered the facility. The employees later dumped the carcasses in the river, they alleged.
An FIR was registered against the management of the cow shelter after right-wing organisations alleged negligence by employees of the facility at Nidra Khedi village in Talen tehsil. According to eye-witnesses, employees of the gaushala had locked up the facility and left, as heavy rains lashed the area earlier this week.
The deaths came to light when the water level receded in the river on Wednesday, following which the police and naib tehsildar Sourabh Sharma reached the spot, an official said.
Meanwhile, state Congress spokesman Narendra Saluja in a tweet criticised the Madhya Pradesh government for the state of affairs at the gaushala in a regime that termed itself as “goubhakt” (cow protectors).
