According to details given on the map, the shutter of their shop remained locked, a trick to avoid any expected raid however workers remain inside the shop and continue making ‘Haram’ meat. They also have a back gate to run in case of any raid.

The information provided by Mukhtar also reveals that these groups are paying 20,000 RS each per month to local police for not interrupting their activities.
Mukhtar requested and media to raid the locations he has provided and take strict action against the groups.
