Silent On Bulandshahr Violence, Yogi Meets Slain UP Cop's Family

Family of slain Uttar Pradesh Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, who was killed in Bulandshahr mob violence, met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on December 6, even as the main conspirator of the mayhem, Bajrang Dal's Yogesh Raj, continues to evade an arrest.

The meeting was held at the 5, Kalidas Marg residence of the Chief Minister in Lucknow, where Sunita, the widow and her two sons Shreya and Abhishek were present.

Adityanath told the bereaved family that his government was with them in their hour of tragedy and would always remain by them, an official told IANS. 

It was in December 3 violence that the inspector was killed along with another civilian. 

Although the prime accused -- Bajrang Dal's district coordinator -- is still at large, the police have arrested four others named by Yogesh Raj in an FIR alleging cow slaughter.


Sarfuddin, Shajid, Asif and Nanhe -- who were among the seven accused named for cow slaughter in the First Information Report (FIR), have been arrested, the police said.

The police also had reportedly picked up two minors but were forced to release them after villagers stormed the police station.

There 
have already been two high-level meetings on the Bulandshahr incident with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. However, there was "no clarity on the line of action" with regards to the arrests of men belonging to the VHP, Bajrang Dal and BJP -- named in another FIR, informed sources said. 

Two press notes released by the Chief Minister's Office showed no mention of the lawlessness perpetrated by the Bajrang Dal and their ilk, but speak in detail about how strict action should be taken against people involved in slaughter of cows or running illegal 
abbatoirs, despite a ban announced on March 17, 2017, days after the Bharatiya Janata Party government was sworn in.

"It is now proved beyond doubt that the police is deliberately not taking any action against the Bajrang Dal leader as they have connections with the BJP" Vaibhav Maheshwari, the state spokesman of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) told IANS.
