Cattle carcasses were found strewn in the fields outside village Mahaw in Siyana on December 3 after which a mob went on the rampage, attacking the local post.

Subodh Kumar Singh, 44, and civilian Sumit Kumar, 20, of Chingrawathi village were killed of gunshot injuries in the ensuing violence.

Two separate FIRs were registered one for the violence in which nearly 80 people including 27 named and the other for cow slaughter at the station.

Yes, said in response to a PTI query on whether the stringent NSA was invoked against those arrested in the cow slaughter case.
