Siliguri, 15th October: During a press conference held at the Siliguri Journalists Club, People for Animals Organization member Sangita Mitra stated that cattle are being illegally transported through the borders of different areas including Phansidewa, Bidhannagar, Vimbar in overloaded vehicles.
Mitra further said that overloaded vehicles are transporting cattle without a permit. Due to this, many cows have been injured several times. A complaint was filed on behalf of the People for Animals Organization at Phansidewa Police Station regarding this matter, and several steps were taken based on the complaint. But unfortunately, similar incidents surfaced once again recently. The police, on behalf of the organization, has urged the administration to take stern action against such malpractices as soon as possible.
