With the ongoing tussle regarding the ban of cows sale for slaughter getting more and more intensified, new DGP of UP Sulkhan Singh had issued an order, that those involved in cow slaughter should be booked under NSA and Gangsters Act.
Singh asked the officers to take the assistance of intelligence networks and register FIRs against vigilantes without any sort of delay.
According to NSA, the government can detain an individual for whatever time frame they want, without any requirement of disclosing the detention ground.
On the other side of the coin, individual booked under the provision of Gangsters Act becomes part of a gang whose records are there with the police officials.
It gives police officials an opportunity to keep track of those booked under the Act and issue summons to them for local police station attendance for questioning purpose even if they have no fresh cases to talk about.
The Act gives police officials remand of an accused for a maximum of two months, which is just two weeks in normal circumstances.
