Taking the evidence seriously, the court asked the police whether the truck without engine, flywheel and seat had come to bihar carrying animals?

By expressing displeasure, the court has directed the Superintendent of police to conduct a high-level investigation of the entire matter at his level and submit a report to the court within a month.
