Tribals perform Animal Sacrifice in Bolangir despite Section 144

Bolangir, Dec 30: The tribals on Tuesday performed animal sacrifice during annual Sulia Yatra at Khairaguda in Bolangir district despite section 144 imposed by the district administration.

The tribals sacrificed thousands of animals including innocent goats, buffaloes, cocks, hens in the name of rituals for the deity at Kumuria and Badakhala villages by breaking the restriction and prohibitory order.

Like every year, this time also the district administration could not stop the heinous practice. Even though thousands of police forces were deployed at the ritual sites, but they remained silent during the celebration.

Neither the police not the officers made efforts to prevent the tribals from performing the animal sacrifice.
