According to reports, a group of Sangh Parivar activists on Saturday night caught two persons when they were illegally transporting a cow in a Mahindra Scorpio at Krishnapura. The reports claimed that the duo had stolen the cow from the same area. The newspapers further claimed that the vigilantes soon realized that the miscreants belonged to BJP. The miscreants then requested the vigilantes to leave them and not to bring the matter to light, reports said.
