Now UP police chief calls Bulandshahr violence a conspiracy

Reports say that the violent mob torched vehicles and vandalised parts of the police station.

"Bajrang Dal members were at the police station complaining against cow slaughter when violence broke out".

Additional forces have been deployed to maintain peace in the area.

There was confusion about the number of those arrested with police officials first saying four, then three and finally four again.

Anand Kumar said the exact reason for the policeman's death will be known after a post-mortem and the inquiry by the Additional Directer General for intelligence who has been asked to submit a report in 48 hours.

The troubled district of Bulandshahr has seen many vioelent attacks in the past.

Subodh Kumar Singh, a police inspector, and a local villager were killed in the violence.

"The people named above continued to incite violence".

Demanding "martyr" status for the slain inspector, who was one of those who initially probed the 2015 lynching of Mohammed Akhlaq, his sister alleged his killing was a conspiracy of the police.

Modi, who will seek a second term in office in elections by May, previous year condemned murder in the name of protecting cows after a string of vigilante killings sparked protests. "He should be given martyr status and a memorial should be constructed in his name in our native place", Sunita Singh told reporters. My brother has given his life for her. Even as she bravely questioned the absence of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath from the state at a time when violence had been unleashed, she made sure to register her view that it was important to protect the cow, which is considered a mother.

In Chingrawathi village, Sumit's family initially refused to conduct his last rites until the government assured Rs 50 lakh compensation, pension to his parents and a police job to his kin. On Tuesday, however, the district administration announced Rs 5 lakh compensation for his family. BJP MP from Bulandshahr, Bhola Singh, was present along with other local leaders. "Instructions were also issued to take stringent action against people involved in cow slaughter". Beena Devi, a former village pradhan and sister-in-law of Raj Kumar, blamed police for the smashed vehicle, chulha, chairs and other items in the household.

According to a statement issued by the police, they had got information from the Gram Pradhan on Monday morning that cow meat had been found in Mahavas village after which Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh went there for investigation.

A day after he was killed, the chief minister Yogi Adityanath held a late night security review but kept the focus only on cow slaughter. The mob left almost six policemen wounded, burned down a police station and set several vehicles on fire.
