Donkey slaughter bid foiled, butchers arrested

MULTAN: Locals in Shujabad on Saturday caught two butchers red-handed while slaughtering a donkey accusing them of planning to sell the meat for consumption.

The suspects were handed over to the police and shifted to the Sadar Police Station where both the suspects rejected the allegations saying that they had slaughtered the animal to get its hide.

Ghulam Yasin and Sufyan said they were to receive Rs 25,000 for the hide and didn’t intend to sell the meat of donkey.

Police have locked up the suspects and were carrying out further investigation.
