Cattle smuggling seems to have continued in Assam despite tough laws, arrests, and encounters against it. The smugglers are utilising innovative methods to move cattle from one location to another.

In the latest incident, at least 35 smuggled cattle were found inside a passenger bus that was seized by Police in Assam’s Nagaon district on Saturday.

On Friday, based on specific information, the police launched an operation at Missa.

A night super bus that was travelling from the Eastern Assam side and heading toward Meghalaya was stopped early on Saturday morning, as per the official.

However, the driver and conductor fled from the bus. Meanwhile, the police rescued the cattle.

The police has registered a case and an investigation is underway.
