Cop among 2 dead as clashes break out in UP’s Bulandshahr

Cop among 2 dead as clashes break out in UP’s Bulandshahr”

Additional director general of police (law and order) Anand Kumar identified those arrested as Chaman, Ram, Satish (only first names were given) and Ashish Chauhan, and said the prime suspect in the Monday morning's violence, triggered by allegations of cow slaughter, is a man named Yogesh Raj.

They alleged that they had found carcasses of cows earlier that day in the fields - videos, which soon began circulating on WhatsApp and social media, show a tractor with several carcasses blocking the road leading to the police station.

It is unclear where the alleged cow slaughter occurred.

Singh was investigating officer in the Akhlaq case between September 28, 2015 and November 9, 2015, UP police officials said.

It's unclear when the violence broke out but one eyewitness, a man who works in a school near the police station, told the BBC that he could hear the two sides fighting for more than a half hour and gunshots rang out at regular intervals.

Police refused to confirm Raj's political affiliations, but the regional coordinator of the Bajrang Dal, the youth wing of the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), Balraj Singh Dungar, said that Raj was the convenor of the Bulandshahr unit of the Dal.

A bulk of the second FIR is of Chandra's recollections of the almost two-hour ordeal. "It was peak traffic time", the sub-inspector has claimed.

"These assurances were given by them on a loudspeaker". However, the mob did not pacify instead it went on a rampant to vandalise police station and the police van.

"The people named above continued to incite violence". When police asked them to lift the blockade, they attacked police, he said.

Tears rolled down the eyes of family, friends and colleagues of slain Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh when the body was consigned to flames in a state funeral in the evening. "A local resident was also killed in firing, it is not clear this was firing from the crowds or the police", district official Anuj Kumar Jha said by phone. They also burnt official documents, records and other property...

The second FIR also alleges that the mob targeted the Syana circle officer (DSP-rank officer) Satya Prakash Sharma. Kumar said more than a dozen cars were set alight.

In Bulandshahr, emotions ran high even as the police imposed section 144, prohibiting the assembly of more than four persons, and came down hard on isolated skirmishes.

According to the DM, the mob comprised around 400 locals.

"The CO who had locked himself in a room called the control room for additional force following which at least five police officers, including DSPs and SHOs of the district, reached the spot with additional force and rescued him after breaking down the door of the room he was in", Chandra's complaint reads.
