Azam Khan's buffaloes tracked

The Uttar Pradesh Police went into a tizzy after seven buffaloes belonging to senior Minister Azam Khan were stolen from a barn here.

They managed to rescue the cattle on Sunday following an intensive overnight search.

Dog squads, crime branch sleuths and personnel from various police stations raided slaughter houses and meat shops to collect clues about the stolen bovine, worth several lakhs of rupees, Superintendent of Police Sadhna Goswami said.

On the direction of District Collector N.K.S. Chauhan, a complaint was registered within minutes of the theft on Saturday and four police teams were formed to tackle the case, officials said. Searches were carried out in the neighbouring districts too, said Ms. Goswami.

Circle officer Alia Hasan said the buffaloes were tracked down on Sunday afternoon, but refused to give details.

Sources said some persons had been detained for interrogation.
