But eventually, 71 calves were found after an intense search operation within the premises. They were hidden under low-lying trees and bushes, with their mouths and feet tied, the report says.

Things turned for the worse when a mob gathered outside the slaughterhouse. When the reporter attempted to ask them their side of the story, the mob thrashed him and also attacked him with stones. His mobile phone also broke in this attack, the report says.

Police have booked seven men namely Gazipeer, Khasi, Syed, Mubarakhan, Noor, Imthiaz and Tabrez under various sections of animal cruelty act. However, no separate FIR was registered for the attack on the journalist.
