Roosters fight, Betul court to decide the fate of cockerels

Chronicle Reporter, Betul

Two peculiar ‘witnesses’ will be seen in Betul court. The police have been asked to produce two cockerels, seized from a cockfight in Khairi village on Sunday, before the presiding judge.

The feathered warriors were tied in separate corners of a cell at the Athner Police Station for the last three days because they couldn’t stop fighting with each other, sources said. The police has arrested Laxman Uike and Bapu Rao for allegedly organising the cockfight so that local residents could place bets on the outcome.

“We also seized nine two-wheelers during the raid. A case has been registered, and we are trying to identify the people who fled from the spot,” police station in-charge Praveen Kumre said.

He added that the court would decide the cockerels’ fate. “Two birds seized in a similar case in Balaghat district were auctioned off on the orders of the local court,” he said. Constable Rohit Kushwaha said the cockerels would have killed each other if they weren’t tied separately.

“They are very aggressive. We have been feeding them well for the last three days, so they look nice for their court appearance,” he said.
