Body parts of calf thrown in Jodhpur, tension prevails

Jodhpur: Tension prevailed in the city today after body parts of a calf were thrown in a locality, following which Shiv Sena activists held a protest against the incident, police said.

The incident occurred this evening when some motorcycle- borne miscreants threw away the parts of a calf in housing board area and fled from the spot, SHO (Chopasni Housing Board) Jabbar Singh said.

“Soon the Shiv Sena activists gathered at the spot and started protesting. We rushed to the spot, pacified the angry Shiv Sainiks assuring them of arrest of the accused after which they dispersed,” Singh said.

But later in the evening, the activists again assembled at a different location close to a mosque and started forcefully closing down shops in the market, he said.

Police teams were rushed to the spot to disperse them and avoid any untoward occurrence. Four Shiv Sena activists were arrested, the SHO said.

The activists have called half-a-day bandh tomorrow in the city.

Strict vigil is being maintained across the city, especially to stop the activists from assembling. The situation is tense but under control, Singh said.
