JORHAT, Aug 6: Stray cows left uttended by the owners in Jorhat, which have been the cause of many accidents in the -Ali Lichubari area of Jorhat, were taken into custody by a team of Lichubari police led by the IC Uttam Bora and Head Constable Keshav Gogoi and were dispatched to the Gosala at Garmur. Interestingly, not a single owner came forward to claim ownership of the stray cows despite police appeal to take them back but as soon as the police started to catch the cows and pull them into a truck, their owners, mostly residents of Lichubari, started arriving at the spot and were seen requesting the police to let their cows off. By and large the residents of the locality, which is also a busy business hub connecting Titabor as well as Assam Agricultural University besides housing a large number of educatiol institutions, have lauded the effort of the police in trying to make the citizens aware about raising and rearing livestock. The police later informed the owners to collect the stray cows on the basis of an application and possibly a minimum fine from the Gosala. The whole idea behind today’s operation was to caution the owners and to make them keep their cattle at home or make them graze in some other location away from human and traffic contact. After this drive, not a single cow was seen in the -Ali Road.
