‘Badshah’ the bull has gone missing in Sarnath, where Buddha attained enlightenment. A reward of Rs.50,000 has been announced by his owner, Manoj Kumar Pandey, for his safe return.
Posters with the bull’s photo and the reward amount have been pasted in several localities in the religious city, 10 kms from Varanasi.
And that is not all; a missing person report has also been registered with the Sarnath police station. Of course, the police have stated that they’ll do everything in their power to bring the three-year-old bull back. According to reports, the bull lived like any other family member.
The bull went missing on April 2.
It is noteworthy here that when the buffaloes of Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan went missing in 2014, a massive search operation was launched to find them. The animals were found after an overnight operation and three policemen were suspended.
