New Delhi : In a bizarre incident, three men were roughed up in posh South Delhi, allegedly by activists of an animal rights group. The police are questioning the men, who were transporting buffaloes from Gurgaon to Ghazipur mandi for slaughter. 

A case has been filed against the men for inhumane treatment of the animals.

"The buffaloes were in bad shape," an officer said.Admitting that the men sustained minor injuries, a police officer said they got treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. But no complaint has been filed against the attackers, said a senior police officer, Ramil Baniya.

The rights group involved, the officer said, was People for Animals. "The NGO PFA has been working against animal cruelty in Delhi for a long time. They are not 'gau rakshaks'," he said.

The office of Union Minister Maneka Gandhi, a well-known animal rights activist who is also the chairman of the PFA however, denied that the men are connected to the organisation.
