New Delhi: The situation in communally sensitive Trilokpur area of East Delhi is tense after two dead cows were recovered near a park on Wednesday. Extra police force has been deployed in the area which has witnessed incidents of communal violence in the past as well. 

According to the police, the matter is under investigation and cops are trying to get a lead about the killing of cows. So far, cops have confirmed that information was received that two dead cows were lying near Jheel Wala park in East Delhi. 

One cow had an injured leg as well, and it seems that the deaths are not natural. The area is very sensitive, and as Delhi will vote on May 12, local police, Rapid Action Force and para-military have been put on standby. 

Cops are claiming that the caller did not see any man near the dead cow but, locals claim that they spotted two men near the cow, but they ran away.

This is not the first case of cow killing in the east Delhi area. In March, Delhi police recovered two dead cows. During the investigation, cops had arrested the accused who had killed the cows and had subsequently thrown them in the North-east area of Delhi.

In 2014, Trilokpuri and Kalyanpuri saw riots over parking space. Police had organised multiple meetings with both the parties involved and were deployed there in massive numbers for a month. Even during the Sikh riots of 1984, out of 2700 killings, 350 people belonged to Trilokpuri.
