New Delhi: In Haryana two men were forced to consume cow dung concoction in order to purify them.
 
A video has surfaced that shows volunteers of the Gau Rakshak Dal forcing two men, who they suspected were beef transporters, to eat a concoction of cow dung, cow urine, milk, curd and ghee almost a fortnight ago.
 
On Saturday June 25, two volunteers of the Gau Raksha Dal were shot at allegedly by beef smugglers on the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway. Gurgaon Bajrang Dal convener Abhishek Gaur and Gau Raksha Dal volunteer Harpal Singh were injured when the smugglers opened fire. Both Gaur and Singh had chased a vehicle in which the smugglers were allegedly transporting beef.
 
About the incident of consuming “panchgavya” (cow dung concoction) on June 10, Dharmendra Yadav, president of the Gurgaon Gau Rakshak Dal, said volunteers, acting on a tip-off, intercepted a vehicle transporting “700 kg of beef from Mewat to Delhi” on the KMP Expressway.
 
“When we caught them, they had 700 kg of beef in their car. Admitting that the Gau Rakshak Dal volunteers forced the two men — Rizwan and Mukhtiar — to eat the cow concoction, Yadav said, “We made them eat the panchgavya to teach them a lesson, and also to purify them.”
