Gujarat High Court pulls up State government for "slow peddling" against the illegal meat shops in various cities, especially Ahmedabad and Surat.

Bench of Chief Justice Ashutosh Kumar and Justice Ashutosh J Shastri expressed displeasure over State's "action taken" report.
Bench is not satisfied with the manner in which action is taken in Ahmedabad. It notes that of 29 shops running without licences, only 15 have been sealed.

CJ: What about the rest? Are you not serious about this issue? Do you know the consequences?

CJ: We are concerned even if a single shop is running without licence. Food poisoning would take place at any shops. Do you know the consequences of this? Large number of people can fall ill. Who shall be made responsible?

Asst. Govt. Pleader tells the court that soon action would be taken.

Bench notes that in Surat of over 293 shops only 60 have been acted upon.

CJ: What is this Mr Counsel? Your civic chief has failed to perform his Constitutional duty by not taking action against all shops.
CJ: How can you let such shops continue which aren't selling stamped meat. You know even if a 1kg meat is injected with water its weight increases by 300 grams. Consuming such meat would cause mainly diarrhoea. People with low immunity can even die due to this.

CJ: Does the administration wants people to die? Obviously not. But then you need to take action against each and every such shop. Courts cannot correct all your errors. You need to take such action that can result in deterrence even for others.
