After the incident, workers of several right wing organisations staged protests and blocked roads on Saturday.

The police have registered a case against nine persons under the MP Anti-Cow Slaughtering Act, Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and Indian Penal Code provisions for rioting, assaulting and intimidation, Shukla said.

The offence of cow slaughter attracts imprisonment of up to seven years in the state.

The official said more than six other persons allegedly involved in the case were absconding and search for them was on in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
