BHOPAL: Chief minister Kamal Nath has warned that extortion in the name of cow would not be tolerated in Madhya Pradesh. 

The chief minister has said that nobody will be allowed to commit violence in the state.

"If anyone has information about illegal trafficking or cow slaughter, they must inform the police and administration. We will take tough action", he said.

However, he said that nobody will be allowed to take law into their own hands and commit anti-social activities in the name of cow protection. "Those involved in vitiating atmosphere due to recovery, extortion or by running their own gangs and indulge in violence, would face tough action".
