A cow was found slaughtered in a park in Gaushala Road on Friday morning in Central Delhi's DCM Railway Colony. The body of the cow has sent for post mortem said police. 

A candlelight march was organised by the residents in the evening where people from nearby areas also came. They will protest outside Fimistan Cinema Hall in Rani Jhansi Road in Central Delhi on Saturday, said the residents.

Residents who go for morning walk regularly to the park spotted the cow early morning around 6 am. The park is a retreat for Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers who practice yoga there every day.

 Police said that the cow was killed after 1 am in the dead of the night and no one witnessed the act. None of the body parts of the cow were missing. The head of the cow was impaled, legs were tied with a rope and skin was peeled off from its body. The insides of the cow were missing, said the residents.

According to the residents, it was done deliberately done to ignite rioting. Over 50 to 60 police officers were deputed on the spot to keep a check on the movements of people, so that no untoward consequences follow. Residents had a meeting in the evening to decide on the action to be taken at a local level.

Himangshu, a Sangh worker said that this is a pre-planned act because they know that RSS workers come here regularly. “One knows that if one keeps a cow lying like that, the workers will be angered and if the workers are angered there will be a riot,” he said.

“But RSS has planned to sort this peacefully because if we start a riot we will not be able to answer Pakistan on terrorism, especially after the Uri attack,” said Himangshu.

There are three to four Muslim families who live in Gaushala Road and the residents were certain that it is not their doing.

“It must be people from the Bara Tooti Chowk,” said a resident. Bara Tooti Chowk lies on the opposite side of DCM Colony and the residents here refer to Bara as “Mini Pakistan”.

Pawan Gupta, a resident told Deccan Herald that he is extremely upset because the councillor of DBG Road did not turn up after the incident.

But the residents called for an evening meeting where people from Nangloi, DCM Colony and Burari were called, so that they can together decide for the safety of their cows and humans.

“If this kind of thing can happen with a cow that means people are also not safe here,” said Pawan.
