New Delhi: Around 9:30 pm 30 trucks full of cattles smuggling to the slaughter house were passing through the busy ITO circle in central Delhi at when they were intercepted by the NGO named PFA.

NGOs, who work for animal rights, were shocked to see the condition in which the animals were being transported. The cattle were stuffed into the trucks – one on top of other.

Due to the heavy traffic on the busy road, only few trucks could be stopped. The rest managed to flee.

Some animals were found with broken legs, some had chilly powder in their eyes and others were found to be under the spell of sedatives, which had rendered them unconscious.

The plight of the animals raised tensions in the area. A mob of agitated people broke wind-shield of the trucks and late torched one in protest.

Fire tenders rushed to the spot but left after they doused the fire and without helping in the rescue of the animals.

The police have barricaded the entire area. The incident has led to a huge traffic jam on the busy Ring Road.

The rescued cattles were undertaken by the NGOs.
