Patiala: The Punjab police on Sunday arrested the chief of Gau Rakshak Dal Satish Kumar, after he was booked on charges of abduction and few other sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). He will be produced before the Local District Magistrate Court later in the day.

The Fir was lodged against him on the basis of a video clip which went viral on social media, showing Gau Rakshaks brutally harassing and thrashing people in the name of cow protection.

A case under section 377( unnatural offences), 382 (having made preparations for causing death), 384(committing extortion), 341 (wrongfully restraining any person), along with sections 148 and 149 was registered against Kumar on August 6, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the states to act against fake cow vigilantes.

Kumar was absconding since he was booked on the basis of the complaint filed by a cow trader. Victims also told the Judicial Magistrate that they were torched, robbed and sodomised by Satish.

Earlier Satish Kumar said he doesn’t feels awkward if someone calls him a goon. He said, “I don’t mind if someone calls me a goon for saving the cow. If someone who saves the cow is labelled a goon, I’ll be proud to become the country’s biggest goon.”
