Two buffaloes were stolen from a barn owned by the Saharanpur Samajwadi Party city president Fazal-ur-Rahman last month by a group of 10 robbers. Now some of them have been arrested — the crack police team did everything to track the culprits and bring them to justice.

An exuberant Saharanpur Senior Superintendent of Police Nitin Tiwari held a press conference and announced a reward of Rs 5,000 for the police team which was led by Hasanpur SHO Brajesh Kumar Kushwaha to recover the buffaloes.

However, this was not the first time that Rahman’s buffaloes were targeted.

Eight months back two of his buffaloes were stolen.

Those two stolen buffaloes are yet to be recovered. While that remains a top priority for the police team, the fact that two special buffaloes have been recovered has become a matter of great pride for the district police.

Tiwari said, “The police have recovered two buffaloes which were taken away last month and are still looking for the remaining two which were stolen eight months back. They have also recovered one cow and one calf that were stolen and arrested five people. Fazal-ur- Rahman is very happy with the police.”

Samajwadi Party leader Rahman also said, “The robbers had not only taken away my two buffaloes but they had also robbed Rs 22,000 from my accountant. The police have done a good job by recovering two of my buffaloes. But two other buffaloes are yet to be recovered.”

Recently, Uttar Pradesh governor Ram Naik had spoken out against police’s reluctance in taking up the cases of common people and remaining busy with the search for the cattle of politicians.
