New Delhi: The Supreme Court issued notice to the Centre seeking its response on two PILs challenging the constitutional validity of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Care and Maintenance of Case Property Animals) Rules, 2017, regulating the sale of bovine animals for slaughter.

A vacation bench of Justices R.K. Agrawal and Sanjay Kishan Kaul was hearing the petitions filed by Hyderabad-based Mohammed Abdul Fah-eem Qureshi, president of All India Jamiatul Qure-sh Action Committee, and one Sabu George seeking a declaration that the rules were unconstitutional and illegal. The Bench said it would not pass any interim order and posted the matter to July 11.

 

Reacting to the notice, environment minister Harshvardhan told mediapersons, “We will reach out to any person in India who has a heartburn on this issue. We have already said that whosoever has any concern related to this issue, we (Centre) will seriously and honestly address those.”
