More than 200 Shiv Sena members have shut 500 meat shops, including a KFC outlet, in old Gurgaon for nine days on account of Navratri. They also threatened the shop owners on Tuesday to shut their establishments on every Tuesday.
“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,” Gautam Saini, the president of Shiv Sena, Gurgaon, told PTI.
The Sena workers assembled at Palam Vihar yesterday and forced the closure of meat market and dhabas such as Bismillah Khan eatery in others areas too.
However, ACP-PRO of Gurgaon Police Manish Sehgal said some meats shops were shut down but they were later opened. These shops have commercial licence to sell meat. Strict action will be taken against those forcing closure of shops illegally.
