NGO files response to JMC’s report, opposes mechanized slaughter houses

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Sept 14: Division Bench of the State High Court comprising First Puisne Judge Justice Alok Aradhe and Justice Sanjay Kumar Gupta today directed the Registry to place on record the response filed by the petitioner NGO (SAVE) to the status report filed by the Jammu Municipal Corporation in the much publicized PIL seeking closure of unregulated and unregistered slaughter houses/ meat shops in the State.
When the PIL came up for hearing, Advocate Sheikh Shakeel Ahmed appearing for the petitioner submitted that pursuant to the orders passed by the Division Bench on August 31, 2018 the petitioner NGO SAVE through its Chairperson Devinder Kaur Madaan alias Rumpy Madaan has filed the response to the status report opposing the mechanized slaughter houses in Jammu.
The petitioner NGO has submitted that the modernization of slaughter houses by any stretch of imagination cannot be interpreted as mechanized slaughter houses. “The mechanized slaughter houses are not the solution to the illegal and unregulated slaughter houses as suggested by the Jammu Municipal Corporation”, the petitioner said, adding “mechanized slaughter houses inflict cruelty and manual slaughter houses are of low cost, ecological and in much more consonance with the laws”.
Upon this, Division Bench directed the Registry to place on record the response filed by the petitioner. Senior AAG S S Nanda and Advocate Sachin Gupta appeared for Housing and Urban Development Department and Jammu Municipal Corporation.
