Lucknow, Dec 4: Abhishek Kumar son of martyred police inspector Subodh Kumar who was killed yesterday during Bulandshahr violence, on Tuesday said that his father always wanted his children to respect all religions.
“He wanted us to be a good citizen. He wanted us to be a person who doesn’t incite violence in the name of religion. Be it Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or Christian everyone is equal over here. It is my father who lost his life this time, who is going to be the next?”Abhishek told ANI.
Rememebering his last conversation with his father Abhishek said, “I had spoken to him one day before the incident. He was telling me to work on my weak subjects and advised me to focus more on the subject in which I received fewer marks during the last examination.”
Inspector Subodh Kumar and a local youth were killed in Bulandshahr on Monday when a mob went on a rampage over allegations of illegal cow slaughter.
The slain police inspector was also among the five officers who probed the murder of Dadri resident, Mohammed Akhlaq, who was lynched in 2015 by the mob over cow slaughter.
The state police have filed two First Information Reports in connection with the incident. One FIR is against the alleged cattle slaughter and the other against the violent protests which followed.
