New Delhi, April 23: Three men who were transporting buffaloes were beaten up by ‘vigilantes’ in the national capital, police said.

According to some accounts, a few members of animal rights group People for Animals (PFA), which is headed by Union Minister Maneka Gandhi, were also involved in the incident.

The incident held on Saturday late night in south Delhi’s Kalkaji area following which police was informed by PFA activist Gaurav Gupta about the buffaloes being taken to Ghazipur slaughterhouse in east Delhi.

All the 14 buffaloes were rescued and the vehicle carrying them has been impounded, police added.

However, eyewitnesses informed that a group of five to six PFA activists allegedly beat up Rizwan, Kamil and Ashu after stopping their vehicle near Kalkaji temple, while three others, said to be butchers, reportedly escaped from the spot.

Rizwan and Kamil, residents of Haryana’s Pataudi, and Ashu from Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura were rushed to AIIMS trauma centre from where they were later discharged, police said.

“It was not a case of illegal transporting of cattle but carrying them in a cruel and inhuman manner. Two FIRs have been registered in the matter. One for cruelty towards animals and the other against unknown persons for assault,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Baaniya.

However, Gupta denied that PFA members assaulted the men transporting the buffaloes and claimed it was some locals, enraged after seeing the animals being transported cruelly, who attacked them.

Police have arrested two in-laws of a woman on charges of killing her and her partner, who were crushed under a tractor in Jalna district of Maharashtra allegedly over an “illicit relationship”, an official said on Friday.

The accused, Bathwell Sampat Lalzare and his son Vikas Lalzare, residents of Chapalgaon village under Ghansawangi tehsil, were arrested on Thursday, said Ambad police inspector Aniruddha Nandedkar.

Bathwell Lalzare is the father-in-law of the deceased woman Mariya, a widow, while Vikas Lalzare is her brother in-law, he said.

The police said the 32-year-old Mariya Lalzare’s husband died 10 years ago and she lived with her in-laws.

She was in a relationship with a married man, Harbak Bhagwat (27), a resident of the same village, they said.

Her in-laws opposed their relationship and threatened Bhagwat with dire consequences when they came to know about it, the police said.

Bhagwat had filed a complaint at the Ambad police station and with the district SP against the father-son duo, and also claimed there was a threat to his life from them, they said.

On March 30, Bhagwat and Mariya had eloped and reached Gujarat after which a missing complaint was lodged with the police by her family, they said.

On April 22, the police brought them back from Gujarat and since then they were living together in the village, they said.

On October 28, both were headed on a motorcycle to a nearby village to attend a programme when the accused Vikas Lalzare allegedly hit their motorbike with the tractor and crushed them under the wheels, the police said.

The wounded couple was rushed to a hospital but they succumbed to injuries on the way, the police said.

The wife of Bhagwat accused Vikas Lalzare and his father of killing her husband and Mariya, they said.

“We have registered a case against Vikas and his father under IPC section 302 (murder). Further investigation is going on,” said inspector Nandedkar.

With Delhi reporting record jumps in Covid-19 cases for two straight days, Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Friday emphasised the importance of wearing face masks, saying people should consider them as a “vaccine” against the virus till the time one is available.

The spread of the virus can be stopped to a large extent if everyone wears a mask. Masks have more benefits than a lockdown, the minister said.

Delhi has reported record jumps of over 5,000 Covid-19 cases for the past two days. It reported 5,673 cases on Wednesday and 5,739 on Thursday.

“People should consider masks as a vaccine till there is one. The spread of the virus can be stopped to a large extent if everyone wears a mask,” Jain told PTI.

“A mask has more benefits than a lockdown,” he added.

The Delhi government has cited its new strategy involving aggressive contact tracing and testing as one of the reasons behind the sudden surge in the number of infections in the city.

The Union Health Ministry, however, has attributed the rise to social gatherings during festivities, deteriorating air quality, and increasing incidence of respiratory disorders.

The positivity rate in Delhi also jumped to 9.55 per cent on Thursday as the infection tally mounted to 3.75 lakh. The number of active cases in the city rose to 30,952 on Thursday from 29,378 the previous day.

Twenty-seven more fatalities were reported on Thursday, pushing the death toll in the national capital to 6,423.
