Hello Vizagites! Happy Bhogi! Did you start your day with Bhogi-mantalu? Isn’t there something about Sankranti which just makes you filled with love for traditions!
But one ‘tradition’ which is not only cruel to animals but also incites gambling, has been giving Vizag Police a hard time- that of cock-fights and betting along with it. According to a report in The Hindu, cock-fights, though banned by High Court, has seen a rise in the Vizag city, with organisers and bettors using social media to share videos of cock-fights to attract youth into betting. In view of this, the police have increased their vigil and are conducting raids in areas where cock-fights were allegedly held last year in Vizag!
