The Rajasthan government ordered a three-day ban on sale of meat during the Jain festival this month, two days after a meat ban in Mumbai.

Rajasthan Government bans the sale of meat for 17th, 18th and 27th September as well as meat and fish shops will be kept closed.

Hindustan Times is in possession of both the orders. The letter on this was sent to the heads of all civic bodies – municipal corporations, councils and municipalities – as well as district collectors. Though the directorate also prohibited the sale of liquor during that period, it later rescinded the order because it did not have the “jurisdiction” to do so.
