Cows are revered by Hindus and slaughtering them is illegal in most Indian states. In the video, the women are cornered by a crowd that is heard screaming “Gau Mata Ki Jai (Hail holy cow)”. They are slapped and punched by the women in the mob until one of them collapses.
No action has been taken against those who assaulted the women, or the policemen at the spot.
Indian state home minister Bhupendra Singh was reported by NDTV as saying: “No can take law in their own hands. A probe will be conducted.”
