Over 500 meat shops including a KFC outlet, in Gurugram, were forced to shut down by Shiv Sena protesters on the account of the nine-day Hindu festival, Navratri.
Protesters also demanded that the meat shops should be closed on every Tuesday also when Hindus usually don’t eat non-veg.
Gautam Saini, the president of Shiv Sena, Gurugram , told media “We have served notices to meat shop owners, including KFC, and other fast food outlets to shut their shops till Navratri ends and on every Tuesday.”
Following the incident, ACP-PRO of Gurugram Police Manish Sehgal said meat shops were closed but afterward they were opened. These shops have commercial license to sell the meat.
He also said strict action will be taken against those who forced to shut down shops illegally.
