Cattle smugglers active again
Law enforcing agencies have failed to check activities of animal smugglers
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
Increased number of cases of bovine smuggling between Jammu and Srinagar by some cattle smugglers should act as an eye-opener for the law enforcing agencies. It appears that this trade has increased manifold with cattle smugglers opting different modes of transport for their operations including the use of tinted glasses on vehicles used for this purpose besides the use of buses. It is an important to note that the police has been able to nab a large number of smugglers and affect seizures of the vehicles and cattle during the past few weeks. It is also important to note that some police officials in certain districts have been able to lay their hands on the smugglers while they enjoyed free movement in the adjoining districts during this period. It cannot be ruled out that some unscrupulous police officials may also be involved in this trade for a share in the booty earned by the smugglers. It is nothing new that police investigations in the past three decades have pointed out time and again that cattle have herded together or stolen from the border belt of Jammu region by the smugglers for their smuggling to Kashmir valley and other hilly areas where they are in high demand throughout the year. Apart from this some transport operators have also acted as agents for the cattle smugglers for transporting the stolen animals from various parts of the region to other parts of the state. Despite the fact that several scores of cattle have been rescued from the smugglers by the authorities, the unscrupulous traders continue to indulge in this trade for making quick money in the process. It is also not out of place to mention that there is bigger problem on this front compared to what appears on the surface because some of the cattle are smuggled from the neighbouring states by the smugglers.
