Cuttack, June 22: The Orissa High Court has directed the Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) to file affidavit on action being taken to enforce the Odisha Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1960 and Rules on June 27.

The division bench of Chief Justice Chakradhari Sharan Singh and Justice Savitri Ratho was hearing a PIL filed by Gau Gyan Foundation, a registered society, in 2018. 

 “The Commissioner of CMC shall be obliged to file an affidavit stating as to how many certificates have so far been issued in accordance with Section 3 of the Odisha Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1960 and Rule 3 of the Odisha Prevention of Cow Slaughter Rules, 1966,” the bench said in its order.

The foundation in its petition sought the court’s intervention for removal of unauthorised and illegal slaughter houses and for regulation of cow slaughter in accordance with the restrictions stipulated in Odisha Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1960.

The petition further sought the court’s direction to regulate transportation of cows in Cuttack, more particularly in the area of Odia Bazaar of Janta Gali, Hatipokhari and Dewan Bazaar under CMC.

The Odisha Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1960 was brought into force to prohibit and prevent the slaughter of cow and its progeny in the state.
