Mumbai: The issue of the dead cows found in Malegaon rocked the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly on Thursday with the Opposition threatening to prevent smooth functioning of the House till the accused were arrested.
The House witnessed five adjournments after the Question Hour.
Shiv Sena legislator Dada Bhuse from Malegaon first raised the matter as soon as the House assembled for the day.
He said bodies of the cows were scattered in different parts of Malegaon city and nearby villages last night. Bhuse also informed that a spontaneous bandh has been observed in Malegaon to protest against the cow slaughter.
Home Minister R R Patil said that he would make a statement after the Question Hour.
Later, he said bodies of eight cows were recovered from three different places.
Patil said that the post-mortem report is awaited and the police have formed two teams to look for the accused.
However, the Opposition members were not satisfied with the reply and demanded strict action be taken against the guilty.
Bhuse said two cows were recovered near a police chowkie and the police officials did not do anything. "The incident was reported to the police by local milkmen," he said.
Leader of Opposition Eknath Khadse described the incident as "inhuman and deliberately done on the auspicious occasion of Ashadhi Ekadashi on Wednesday."
"The bodies were swollen. It looks like they were killed two days ago and then their bodies thrown on the streets on Ashadhi Ekadashi. This is a conspiracy to hurt Hindu sentiments," he said.
Subhash Desai (Shiv Sena) accused the police and the government of having a religious bias.
"If such an incident had happened which hurt the sentiments of other religious group, police would have swung into action by now," he alleged.
Khadse claimed a local woman office bearer of the BJP was so shocked to see bodies of the cows, that she fell unconscious and breathed her last in the hospital this morning.
"You can imagine how horrific the sight must have been," he said.
The Opposition leader charged that some members of the treasury benches were laughing when he was speaking.
An enraged Khadse said that unless the perpetrators of the crime were not arrested, they would not allow the House to function.
