LAHORE (Web Desk) – Local police raided an illegal slaughterhouse and recovered 40 maunds (1600kg) of horse and donkey meat in Harbanspura locality on Tuesday’s wee hours, local media reported.

Police said, the unhygienic and non-halal meat was to be sent to markets early this morning.

The meat is usually sold early in the morning to the city’s local restaurants swarmed by customers all the time.
Two people involved in the heinous business have been taken in custody.
