Mob violence over cow slaughter in UP's Bulandshahr; cop among 2 killed

Three leaders from the Bajrang Dal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and BJP have been named in the FIR lodged by police in the violence that rocked Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh killing a police officer and a young man, authorities said on Tuesday. A purported video showing the body of a policeman slumping to ground from the seat of a vehicle, surrounded by some people, surfaced after the incident on Monday, but the Uttar Pradesh Police refused to confirm if it was of slain inspector Subodh Kumar Singh.

"People complained that cattle carcass was found in the field". NDTV delivers reliable information across all platforms: TV, Internet and Mobile. "They continued to fire, broke the official wireless set and burnt government and private property in the police chowki", Chandra has said.

They raised slogans against the police administration and blocked the Bulandshahr-Garh State Highway.

Hundreds of villagers, incensed over the death of the sacred animals, pelted stones at officers sent to quell the violence just 130 kilometers from New Delhi.

The issue has sparked violence before, but an attack on police is unheard of.

The family also alleged that the Inspector was shot dead in a planned manner and under a deep-rooted conspiracy.

The police have registered cases of rioting, attempt to murder and destruction of property against 50 unnamed people. Refusing to divulge any specific details of the investigation, ADG (law and order) Anand Kumar said the SIT is doing a thorough probe into the alleged cow slaughter incident as well as the ensuing violence.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has declared Rs. 40 lakh for Mr Singh's family, Rs. 10 lakh for his parents and a government job for a family member. Two persons were also injured in police firing one of whom, Sumit, died later.

According to Chandra, the sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) and the circle officer (DSP) of Syana attempted to reason with the crowd and assured them that action would be taken against those accused of the cow slaughter.

"The people named above continued to incite violence".
