Today early morning Samba Police seized a vehicle bearing number PB3509810 near Veer Bhoomi park in the Panchsheel area of Samba. The vehicle was carrying 5 bovines that were being smuggled to Kashmir. Few youngsters who were passing by saw the bovines in the vehicle on the highway and informed their known ones and when the other people reached the site they immediately informed the police. In between the 2 smugglers inside the car ran away. The police arrived at the location and when they opened the vehicle they saw 5 bovines brutally tied in the vehicle. The police then brought the vehicle to an industry with the help of JCB as the vehicle broke down and there the police rescued all the bovines.
While talking to the media one youngster said “our few friends came to Army ground for running and when they were going to the ground they saw a vehicle which was covered from all sides and suspected that the vehicle was carrying bovines as the vehicle was shaking and some noise was coming out. Then they informed us and on reaching we informed the police. The police officials told us that they were already following 2-3 cars as they were already having reports of smuggling. Another car was coming at a high speed from Ghagwal and when we along with the police tried to stop it they didn’t slow down their car and ran away. The police have started investigating the matter”.
We congratulate the youngsters for their help in rescuing the bovines.
