Gau rakshaks exposed: Cow protectors or highway bandits?; VVIP goondaism; more

Most cow vigilantes are trained to strike ferociously but without leaving physical marks on their victims in order to dodge prosecution, an India Today investigation has found.

Experts discuss with India Today's Rajdeep Sardesai - Will the government act against the cow vigilantes caught on camera, who will rein in the gau rakshaks and is it time the government banned these gau rakshaks.
