Slaughterhouse Crackdown: Indore Civic Body To Go The UP Way


Indore: Taking a cue from Uttar Pradesh, the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) on Wednesday said that those running illegal butcheries would not be spared.

“People running illegal butcheries had faced action in the past. We are not going to spare them (this time as well),” IMC Deputy Commissioner Mahendra Singh Chauhan told reporters.

The officer said an unauthorised butchery being run in a makeshift iron shed at Noori Colony was razed yesterday, after a probe established illegality.

“Fowls and goats were slaughtered in rear side of the butchery under unhygienic conditions and their flesh was being sold to people,” the deputy commissioner said, adding that they had acted against vendors selling fish and meat by roadside.

In Uttar Pradesh, the Adityanath Yogi Government has launched a drive against the illegal slaughterhouses, resulting into closure of many of them.

The UP Chief Minister had underscored that his order of closure applies only to illegal slaughterhouses, and abattoirs operating legally will not be touched.
