Concern over cattle smuggling

A Supreme Court panel has expressed grave concern over the phenomenal rise of cattle smuggle across the Indo-Bangla border. In its third report submitted before the Supreme Court the Upanonyu Hazarika committee set up to study the border problem suggested that the shifting of the cattle haats, customs impound centre on the international border with a system of ascertaining credentials of auction and purchasers be implemented immediately.

According to the panel, the situation has been taking  a worse turn. The influx has not been taking place without the knowledge of the state and centre. But governments have been sitting idle. The apex court is expected to take up the report next week.
