Make cow the national animal: Rajasthan HC to Centre

Prime News, National, Jaipur, May 31:- In the hearing over the Hingonia Gaushala matter, the Rajasthan High Court on Wednesday recommended the Centre that the cow be made the national animal, further adding that the punishment for cow slaughter should be escalated to life imprisonment.

ACB ADG has been ordered to prepare report every three months on cowshed and the court has also directed UDH Secretary and municipal commissioner to visit once every month.

Judge Mahesh Chandra Sharma has also instructed the forest department to plant 5,000 plants in the cowshed every year.

The judgement comes in the wake of the Centre’s order on ban on sale of cattle for slaughter, which is facing a strong opposition by the state governments of Kerala, Karnataka and Tripura.
