After the death of the cows, the carcasses remain in the shelter for many days. After the news was broadcast, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi team, today came to dispose off the dead bodies.
The Kejriwal government had sent a team of doctors to the animal shelter. In the morning the MCD cleaning staff was posted on the spot. Food and drinks were arranged for eating and drinking. The workers at the shelter prevented media from investigating the scene and going inside. The villagers said that if there had been cleanliness in the shelter, then the cows would not have died.
