Haryana democratic front leader booked by UP cops for allegedly shooting at cattle


AMBALA: Haryana Democratic Front (HDF) leader Nirmal Singh has been recently booked by the Uttar Pradesh police for allegedly shooting at a cattle near his stud farm on the Haryana-UP border.
On the complaint of Mam Hussain of Mohand village, presently residing at Bartha Korsi village in Saharanpur district of UP, a case has been registered against Nirmal Singh and others under Section 3 (prohibition of cow slaughter), 5 (prohibition of sale of beef) and 8 (penalty) of the UP Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1955 at Behat police station on November 14.
In his police complaint, Mam Hussain stated to the police, “I have kept cows and buffaloes for my livelihood and on November 12, I had gone for grazing them. At about 5 pm, three of my cows were drinking water from Yamuna river when Nirmal Singh of Haryana state who owns a stud farm nearby was roaming there with five of his accomplices, who opened indiscriminate firing with his gun at cows. Due to which cows got injured and one of them is lying injured at my place while the whereabouts of two of them are not known.”
Behat police station house officer (SHO) inspector Anand Mishra said, “A case has been registered and a notice will be issued to Nirmal Singh to present himself before the police for the investigation. As per the preliminary investigation, the complainant owns some livestock and it appears that he has given such a complaint at the behest of someone. It seemed that the incident did not take place in our jurisdiction but we had to register a case on the complaint. An inspection of the spot has been conducted and further probe is being conducted.”
Meanwhile, Nirmal’s daughter Chitra Sarwara on Monday released a video on behalf of her father, she said, “It is extremely sad that such a false case of shooting at cattle has been registered against Chaudhary Nirmal Singh Ji, who is an animal lover. People know Nirmal Singh for years and he is a son of a farmer and grew up in the village. He lived with animals from his childhood. We have several horses and more than 50 cows at our stud farm in the Yamunanagar area. In that area, our personal fight has remained about how to save our animals as there are houses of slaughterers in Saharanpur, UP.”
“About 24 of our cows were once stolen, and five more were stolen in the second theft incident. Another theft attempt was made for the third time. Nirmal Singh Ji can be an animal lover but never a cow slaughterer. It is an investigative complaint and we will see what comes to light after this”, added Chitra.
Recently on November 10, Nirmal Singh inaugurated an office of his party HDF at Ambala on one year anniversary of its foundation and announced to contest civic body polls in Ambala city followed by state assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
