Tripura High Court Bans Animal Slaughtering In Public Places; Know More


The Tripura High Court last week directed the State Government to ban the sale of meat products in public places

The Tripura High Court on Tuesday passed an order banning slaughtering of animals in public places and also directed Agartala Municipal Corporation Authorities to arrange for makeshift facilities where the slaughtering of animals for human consumption would be carried out till the proposed slaughterhouse starts functioning.

The High Court Division Bench headed by Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanty expressed its concerns over the quality of meat being sold in the markets and directed the government agencies like the Department of Animal Husbandry and Pollution Control Board for consistent monitoring.

Earlier, the court had called for a physical appearance of Agartala Municipal Corporation Commissioner Sailesh Kumar Yadav to the High Court on Tuesday. A five-page order was passed after hearing Yadav’s submissions.

Mr Yadav informed the Court that the tendering process for setting up a fully equipped slaughterhouse in the RK Nagar area is underway. “Within 18 months of the tendering the construction works of the project are expected to end,” he said.

After going through his submission, the Court said, “The AMC should prepare a long term plan for not only setting up the abattoir/slaughterhouse but also for ensuring the disposal of garbage in an appropriate scientific manner (which we are told is an additional feature of the slaughterhouse for which tender has been floated). All authorities including the local police authorities are hereby directed to render all necessary assistance to the AMC for enforcing and/or assisting in carrying out its duties.”
