Police on Thursday arrested five people from a minority community for allegedly slaughtering a cow at Bankul in South Tripura district.
The five were arrested on the basis of a complaint from villagers, they said.
"We arrested them on Wednesday and placed the accused before the court of Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate of Sabroom. The court released them on bail," SP Jaal Singh Meena told PTI.
A case was lodged against the five -- hailing from Assam's Kamrup area -- under relevant sections of the IPC, police officer Kamal Kar Choudhury said.
