Ahmedabad: Punishment for cow slaughter in Gujarat will be a life term after an amended law was cleared on the last day of the state assembly session on Friday.

The Gujarat Animal Preservation Act of 1954 also says the punishment for transporting of cows will be 10 years in jail.

In the current law, which was amended in 2011, the maximum jail term for cow slaughter was seven years.

The new law also doubles penalty for the offence form Rs 50,000. The slaughter and transporting of the cow and its progeny was banned in Gujarat in 2011.
