Woman jailed over killing of cow

A court in Nepal has sentenced a woman to 12 years in prison for slaughtering a cow, considered a sacred animal in the predominantly Hindu kingdom.

Police arrested 50-year-old Kripa Bhoteni after receiving complaints that she had killed the animal, dried the meat and eaten it.

Ms Bhoteni is reported as denying that she killed the cow. She received the maximum sentence for the offence.

Killing a cow is illegal in Nepal, the world’s only Hindu kingdom.


Ms Bhoteni was sentenced to prison by a district court in Sankhuasabha district some 500km (310 miles) north-west of the capital, Kathmandu.

According to a report in the Kantipur newspaper, she is not a Hindu.

While killing a cow is illegal, it is not an offence against the law to eat meat from a cow.

Another man charged in the same case has fled and police are searching for him, Kantipur newspaper said.
