JAIPUR: Cow smugglers of Haryana have changed their modus operandi after continued and strict vigilance by the police in districts including Bharatpur, Alwar and Jaipur (rural). The cow smugglers now hire a vehicle along with a driver from Jaipur or its outskirts; their men in various parts load vehicles with cows and allure vehicle drivers with a good amount of money on safe delivery to Haryana’s Nooh Mewat.

This came to the fore in the recent incidents when police in Chandwaji in the outskirts of Jaipur and Alwar seized three vehicles and rescued more than a dozen bovines with the arrest of vehicle drivers.

Senior police officers of Bharatpur range and Jaipur range under whose jurisdiction Alwar and Jaipur (rural) comes, on Friday did not rule out that Haryana based smugglers are actually unfazed with the recent incidents.

“When a slaughtering of cow took place in Alwar a team was sent to Haryana. Superintendent of police of the districts where such cases are rampant have been asked to the vigil. It is found that now they are involving vehicle drivers with a promise to pay them a hefty sum of money to get into smuggling of cows. The interrogation of drivers who were caught cleared that they were allured with money varying from Rs 1,500 to Rs 5,000 per round of dropping the cows at Haryana,” said VK Singh, inspector general of police, Jaipur range.

Despite this revelation the police did not pay heed in applying for extra police remand of these accused.

It may be recalled that Jaipur (rural) police at Chandwaji situated on the Jaipur-Delhi highway had arrested two persons for illegal smuggling of cows and have managed to rescue six cows and five calves. Similarly at Bansur area in Alwar district the police managed to rescue three calves and have arrested the driver of the vehicle on which these calves were transported. In both the cases the bovines were to be smuggled to Nooh Mewat of Haryana.
