As per the preliminary investigation conducted by the police, the cows had been purchased and were being taken to Tamil Now. The trucks had bene engaged by the Tamil Nadu government. "We are making alternative arrangements for their transportation", Singla was further quoted as saying by Indian Express.

A case against 50 persons has been registered for voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from duty and for assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty and also under the National Highway Act.

"Some policemen who did not react in time despite calls from the Tamil Nadu officials have been shunted to the police lines". Singla confirmed that policemen were shunted for reaching late on the spot, "As a disciplinary action, SHO Jairam, Sub Inspector Dhruv Prasad, Assistant Sub Inspector Majid and two head constables and as many head constables were shunted to police lines", Singla added.
