Mumbai, Sept. 21 (ANI): The Bombay High Court on Monday rejected a bail plea that sought an interim lifting of a beef ban.
Two petitions have been filed before the court seeking an exemption from the ban on slaughter and sale of the meat of bulls/male calves from September 25 to 28 on the occasion of Eid.
One of the two petitions filed in this case sought a direction to the state government to temporarily suspend provisions banning and penalising the slaughter of bulls/male calves and possession of their meat in amended Maharashtra Preservation of Animals Act.
The other petition also challenges the Act and seeks a similar relief. (ANI)
