Those involved in cow slaughter and illegal transport of milch animals for slaughter will be booked under the stringent National Security Act and Gangsters Act in Uttar Pradesh as per DGP's order.

The directive has been conveyed to all district police chiefs by the state Director General of Police (DGP) Sulkhan Singh.
