Ban on Dhirios does not appear to have been seriously taken in the state. This is the second recent illegal bullfight organized after the one that took place in the CM’s constituency.
Despite the strict ban on Dhirios (Bullfights), people of Goa still manage to organize the illegal bullfights openly in the state. In one such recent case, the bullfight organized in Colva, south Goa has come into the light. According to the available information, police took swift action after they received the information of illegal bullfight organized in the south Goa and arrested two people involved in it.
The bullfight has been banned by the high court and later the order was upheld by the Supreme Court to ban the bullfight in the state. The arrested people have been booked under the Prevention of Cruelty against the Animals Act. The sources have revealed that the accused Melvin Fernandes and Francisco Colaco owners of buffalos ‘Birble’ and ‘Hampri’ respectively had been instrumental in organizing the illegal bullfights.
Police said that in spite of being aware that, this act is an illegal and it is the cruelty against animal they purposely organized the Dhirios to entertain the public. Police took them into custody and later both were presented before the magistrate and been bailed out by the court.
This incident is the clear indication of fearless as well as careless nature of people towards the law and order in the state. People do not have the fear of law and hence they do not seem to care about the consequences. Defying the order of High Court and well as Supreme Court is a serious offense and it leads to sentence and fine both. Do you think this will ever change? Please do leave your comments and suggestions on this issue.
