IPS officer Bharti Arora (IPS:1998:HY) of Haryana cadre, who supervises the police teams constituted to check slaughter and smuggling of cows, on Monday said that cow smuggling and slaughtering was linked with terrorism.
“It is an organised crime and the money from cow slaughtering is being used to spread terrorism in India,” Bharti said while talking to media persons after holding a meeting of district police officials regarding implementation of Haryana Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act 2015.
Without providing any information about the people behind this organised crime, she said, “Cows are being smuggled from India to Bangladesh via Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. Several groups are working behind this and crores of rupees obtained from the smuggling of cows are being used to kill people and spread terrorism in India.”
A six year old controversy cost dear to IPS officer Arora when the Haryana government decided to post her as a Principal of Rai based Sports School last year; probably it was the first time when an IPS officer was assigned as a Principal in a school.
