Bulandshahr Violence: Slain Police Officer’s family meets CM Yogi
Lucknow: The family of slain Uttar Pradesh Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who promised who take care of his family and to take responsibility of their sons’ education.
Singh was killed allegedly by cow vigilantes in Bulandshahr.
Adityanath met Sunita, the deceased officer’s wife, and her two sons Shreya and Abhishek at his residence here. The elder son, Shreya, is studying MBA and Abhishek engineering.
Assuring them all help, Adityanath said his government would not only take full responsibility of their education loans but would also give a government job to one of the family members.
Briefing the media after the meeting, Director General of Police O.P. Singh said Adityanath assured the family that they need not worry about the education of the two children as it was now the responsibility of the government.
Singh added, “The Chief Minister would be with them in their hour of tragedy and would always remain by them.”
But the prime accused in the mayhem said to be Bajrang Dal’s district coordinator Yogesh Raj remains at large. The police have arrested four others named by Yogesh Raj in one of the two FIRs alleging cow slaughter.
Two high-level meetings regarding the Bulandshahr incident have taken place between the police brass and the Chief Minister.
But 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.
Two press notes released by the Chief Minister’s Office made no mention of the lawlessness blamed on the right wing Hindu groups but spoke in detail about how strict action should be taken against people involved in slaughter of cows or running illegal abattoir.
It is to be mentioned that Police Inspector Subodh Singh and one other were killed while many others were critically injured in Bulandshahr district in Uttar Pradesh on Monday after violence broke out in the aftermath of an alleged case of cow slaughter.
The Inspector was hit by a stone and then shot dead in Monday’s violence that erupted after cow vigilantes blocked a main road alleging cow slaughter.
