This comes amid Opposition’s allegations that the Uttar Pradesh police were shifting the focus of their probe from arresting the accused in the policeman’s death to solving the case of alleged cow slaughter.
Inspector Subodh Singh and a civilian, identified as Sumit, lost their lives in the December 3 violence that broke out over alleged cow slaughter in Bulandshahr.
On Wednesday, the family of deceased Sumit also met the Chief Minister.
So far, the police have arrested 25 persons in connection with the incident.
Earlier in a day, one of the accused surrendered before the Bulandshahr Court of Judicial Magistrate.
