Over 100 cows were reported to have died in some villages in Muzaffarnagar district over two days following which an inquiry was ordered into the incident, officials said on Friday, 8 February.

The cows died in pastures and were suspected to have either eaten poisonous grass or consumed polluted water, Sub-Divisional magistrate Vijay Kumar said.

Kumar added that an inquiry has been ordered into the incident and a team of the revenue department along with veterinarians had gone to the areas where the bovines died to ascertain the cause.

The cows were brought to the pastures from shelter homes.
