It further expressed that the practice proceeds notwithstanding the way that procurements of Ranbir Penal Code make executing of cow-like creatures an offense culpable under Section 298-An and ownership of such butchered creature a demonstration culpable under Section 298-B.

The court likewise watched the divisional official of Kashmir had not recorded a proper reaction about carrying, butchering of ox-like creatures and their consequent deal in the Kashmir valley.

As per the law, butcher and offer of hamburger and in addition the ownership and utilization of meat is a criminal offense.
