Sitting on a highway, they were first thrashed mercilessly and then with swollen faces made to swallow cow dung with the help of water in the name of purification.
The volunteers of the Gau Rakshak Dal urging them to “finish the gobar quickly,” and shouting slogans such as “Gau Mata Ki Jai” and “Jai Shri Ram.”
Interestingly Dharmendra Yadav, president of the Gurgaon Gau Rakshak Dal who narrated the entire incident to Indian Express, admitted that his volunteers had intercepted a vehicle transporting “700 kg of beef from Mewat to Delhi” on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway.
“We had to chase the car for 7 km before we finally managed to stop them near the Badarpur border,” Yadav told The Indian Express.
“When we caught them, they had 700 kg of beef in their car. We made them eat the panchgavya to teach them a lesson, and also to purify them,” he said.
