Till last year, animal sacrifice was carried out at government slaughterhouses but their closure has created a difficult situation in Uttar Pradesh and confusion prevailed among the Muslim community on the eve of Bakrid.
Besides, the movable and immovable property of those involved in such a sacrifice will be impounded, he said.
The SHOs have been asked to take strict action against anyone sacrificing these animals on Bakra Eid also known as Eid-ul Adha, the SDM said.
Mr Khan said the SHOs have been asked to extensively tour their areas and see that no such incident takes place from September 2 to 4.
Uttar Pradesh Police had issued a terse warning in June that those involved in cow slaughter and illegal transport of milch animals will be booked under the stringent National Security Act (NSA) and Gangsters Act.
A person booked under the provision of Gangsters Act becomes part of a gang listed in police records. It entitles the police to keep track of those booked under the Act and issue summons to them for attendance at the local police station for questioning even if no fresh case is lodged against them.
The Act permits the police to seek remand of an accused for a maximum of 60 days as compared to a maximum of 14 days under normal circumstances.
A government order to ban cow slaughter and illegal transport of milch animals was passed during the previous government in the state but was never strictly implemented.
