Subodh Kumar

Lucknow, Dec 4: The Postmortem report on Tuesday confirmed that police Inspector Subodh Kumar died of bullet injury. 

“A bullet has been recovered from the body of Sumit, who died in Bulandshahr violence yesterday. The final post-mortem report will ascertain the bore of the bullet”, ADG Law and Order Anand Kumar told media.

The latest development took place after the police arrested four men in connection with a violence in Bulandshahr district in which claimed lives of two including that of an inspector.

“Four people have been arrested. I don’t know about the organizations yet, but the main accused in the violence is Yogesh Raj who has not been arrested till now”, he said.

“It would be premature to say it was an intelligence failure or failure of any other agency. No action will be taken against any policeman till probe is complete”.

According to the First Information Report (FIR), 27 persons have been named while 60 persons have been listed as unidentified in the incident.

The FIR also named Yogesh Raj, reportedly a senior Bajrang Dal leader who had earlier lodged an FIR alleging cow slaughter.

Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was shot in the head, while one of the young agitators was killed as the police tried to tackle the berserk mob.

In the wake of the incident, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted to probe the matter and submit a report to the Uttar Pradesh government at the earliest.

According to the reports, members of several Hindu groups with an alleged cow carcass gathered on the Bulandshahr-Syana road and pelted stones at the police personnel.

Singh was attacked by the mob when he attempted to clear the traffic snarl caused by the vigilantes carrying the carcasses on tractor trolleys blocking a busy road.

The Station House Officer of Syana, who had probed the lynching of a Muslim man in the Dadri killling in 2015, also over allegations of cow slaughter, was shot at point blank range by the protesting mob.

As the situation remains tense, heavy security has been beefed in Bulandshahr.
