Lucknow: UP CM Yogi Adityanath's cow protection campaign received a major jolt on Saturday. Large number of cow caracasses were recovered from a farm house in Bahraich(East UP), which is just about 200 kilometres from Yogi's home town of Gorakhpur.
When the farm house, belonging to a Additional Chief Medical Officer in the UP government, was raided on a tip off, a number of graves were found. When the graves were dug, the raid party was shocked to see caracasses of cows inside.
Police also recovered medicines from the farm house. It is suspected that the Additional CMO was making ayurvedic medicines using parts of cow bodies. Further investigations are on.
