INDIA: Butcher gangs export illegally slaughtered meat to west Asian countries
Butcher gangs are illegally slaughtering around 4,000 extra animals every day in order to profit from a multi-crore meat export racket, according to officials from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). The butchers in question, says the MCD, are based in residential areas such as Qasabpura, which is close to Delhi's only abattoir. The Idgah slaughterhouse can legally kill 2,500 animals (500 buffaloes and 2,000 sheep and goats) every day, but butchers are slaughtering more in order to meet orders from west Asian countries.
