Gau Raksha Dal chief arrested from Vrindavan

 Gau Raksha Dal chief Satish Kumar was on Saturday night arrested from Vrindavan after being booked on charges of sodomy, rioting and extortion among others.

Senior Superintendent of Police Gurmeet Chauhan on Sunday confirmed his arrest but did not provide any details.

The case was lodged on August 6, two years after a video showing Gau Raksha Dal members brutally thrashing people, went viral .

Satish was also booked under Section 377 of the IPC which criminalises unnatural sex after a youth from Saharanpur charged that he was abducted and sodomised by Satish’s goons.

The victim from Saharanpur had told a judicial magistrate that Satish, Bablu and 10-15 others had forcibly taken him to a cow shelter in Rajpura where he was sodomised.
“Also, some goons had urinated in my mouth,” the youth charged.

Detained by vigilantes

Another victim had told the police last week that he was detained by the self-styled cow vigilantes, robbed and tortured.

He also charged that he was sodomised by Satish.
The Gau Raksha Dal reportedly used to post videos online of attacks on trucks “carrying cattle for slaughter”, showing drivers being thrashed and vehicles torched.
