Bengaluru: The High Court on Tuesday formed a panel to inspect slaughterhouses that are allegedly operating illegally in Bengaluru and asked the panel to submit a preliminary report by October 21.

The High Court also directed the city Police Commissioner to provide security for the panel.

Justice Aravind Kumar passed the order while hearing two petitions, pertaining to offences related to cattle and illegal transportation and slaughter of cattle, in which the petitioners have sought direction to the Centre and State governments to implement laws enacted to prevent cruelty to animals, protection of cow progeny, and to take steps to stop illegal slaughterhouses in the State.

Advocates H.V. Hareesh and D.P. Prasanna, who have been appointed as court commissioners for this purposes, will be part of the panel. Rachaiah, a government pleader in the High Court, and petitioners Kavitha Jain and Joshnie Antony, both representing Gau Gyan Foundation, will also be in it.

Meanwhile, the government counsel pointed out to the court that complaints about illegal slaughtering crop up only on the eve of certain festivals, and the absence of adequate slaughterhouses was the main reason for illegal slaughtering of cattle.
