Nagpur: BJP man held after test confirms he was carrying beef”

Salim Shah, a former member of the minority cell of the Bharatiya Janata Party who was beaten up by self-styled cow vigilantes, was arrested today after the police determined that he was carrying beef.

Part of BJP minority cell, Salim Ismail Shah was suspected of carrying beef when Moreshwar Tandulkar, along with Ashwin Uike, Rameshwar Taywade and Janardan Chaudhary carried out the attack on him. Police had said on Sunday that as per the forensic laboratory report, the meat which he was carrying that day was beef. "It is shocking. He should be given strict punishment", he told News18.

BJP worker Salim Shaha was arrested under the Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act. He was thrashed with rods and sticks by a few men said to be members of Prahar Sanghatan, a fringe group that is allegedly linked to local MLA Bachchu Kadu. A video of him being kicked and punched and dragged on the road had been widely circulated on social media.

"All four persons involved in the attack have been apprehended by the police".

The BJP was forced to change its stance after the forensic report confirmed that the meat was beef. And they beat me so badly that I thought I was going to die.

The BJP had claimed that he was carrying "mutton" and the whole incident was a "conspiracy" to defame the party.

The attack came days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi issued a warning to cow vigilantes, saying the violence they perpetrate is unacceptable.

While the party called it a "stray" episode, its ally Shiv Sena and others, including the opposition Congress and NCP, have condemned the incident. "We condemn this incident, but one can not term it a failure of law and order machinery because this is a stray incident", BJP spokesman Niranjan Shetty said.
