Guidelines have been issued to the district in-charges to act strictly against cow smugglers. Wherever complaints of cow smuggling are received, a joint operation should be conducted immediately after informing the Cow Protection Squad, so that the accused do not get a chance to escape.

Action was limited till the case was filed:
Due to lack of strict action in the case of cow smuggling till now, the smugglers were fearlessly smuggling cows. Cow slaughter cases are also buried in the files in the police stations. Maximum cases of cow smuggling and cow slaughter are registered in Dehradun district. Many cases are registered against smugglers in Vasant Vihar and Patel Nagar police stations. Now due to the action of gangsters against such accused, there will be fear among the criminals.
Strict action will now be taken under the Gangster Act against those who illegally transport and smuggle animals by forming gangs in the state. All the district in-charges have been directed to take action under the Gangster Act against the accused related to the Cow Protection Act 2007.
