Bulandshahr Violence | Congress Demands Judicial Probe

UTTAR PRADESH

The Congress on attacked the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh over the probe into killing of a policeman during mob violence in Bulandshahr, saying over 25 days have passed, but no concrete action has been taken, and demanded a judicial inquiry into the matter.

Mob violence broke out near Chingrawathi police post on December 3 after cattle carcasses were found strewn in a field near Mahaw village. Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh and 20-year-old Sumit Kumar were shot dead as the mob attacked police.

Hitting out at the state government, UP Congress chief Raj Babbar, at a press conference here, said “Over 25 days have passed and the government is still dilly-dallying. Some times Ajay Kumar Bisht’s government seeks praise for itself, at other times it says it was a conspiracy.” A “mobocracy” has prevailed in the country since the formation of the BJP government at the Centre, he alleged.
