Madras PhD scholar student bashed up for holding 'beef fest'

Posted May 31, 2017

Chennai: Two days after a group of IIT-Madras students held an impromptu "beef festival" on the campus, one of the participants was assaulted by a right wing group of students on Tuesday afternoon. More than 50 students supported the cause by participating in this fest late on Sunday night.

On Sunday, some students held a "beef fest" in the campus to protest the Centre's ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter at animal markets.

Sooraj's right eye was seriously damaged and he was rushed to the hospital, said Abhinav Surya, a final year mechanical engineering student who organised the beef festival.

The incident comes on the same day when Madurai Bench of Madras High Court on Tuesday has put a stay on the execution of the order Central government notification to put a nationwide ban on cattle slaughter.

"Aim of the rules is very specific".

However, a day after notifying the modifications, the ministry said that the animals for the objective of slaughter could be procured directly from the farmers at their respective farms.

To ensure the rules are implemented, undertakings would have to be taken in the market by the "District Animal Market Monitoring Committee" at the district level and the "Animal Market Committee" at the local level. The rules also state that the purchaser shall not sacrifice the animal for any religious objective or sell it to a person outside the state without permission and must keep in with the state's cattle protection laws.
