Illegal cockfighting in AP: 2 men die during escape from police

Hyderabad: In a tragic incident reported from Andhra Pradesh, two men met a watery grave after they tried to escape from the police on Friday.

The men were allegedly enraged in illegal cockfighting which is also used as means for betting.

Police who were conducting raids entered the village and saw people fleeing from the site where the illegal cock fighting was being held.

They chased the people who were engaged in the illegal game which led to the two men jumping into the farm well to escape from police.

Unfortunately, the two men died during their attempt to escape.

Police have registered a case and investigations are underway.

Ahead of Sankranti, cockfighting is organised as a rural sport but in some places it has been banned by the administration.
