NSA, which provides for a longer preventive detention, was frequently invoked against suspects of cow slaughter under the previous Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in the state.
The Indian Express had reported that while NSA was invoked against 22 people accused of cow slaughter in M.P. between 2007-2016, this is the first such case under the newly-elected Kamal Nath-led Congress government.
