The killing of a police with so-called ko vigilantes belonging to right-hinduist groups has triggered origin in India.
Local media reported Wednesday that Yogesh Raj, the main suspect behind the violence, is
Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was killed on Monday when villagers, many of them members of right-wing Hindu groups, collided with the police in Uttar Pradesh State Bulandshahr District, about 100km from the Indian capital, New Delhi.
The villagers protested at the alleged incapacity of the police in Chingrawathi village to stop cow slaughter and claim that animal bodies ̵
1; including cows – were found in the area. A police station was fooled, while a young man, who claimed to be a part of the mob, also died in the uprising.
Police’s death after a co-slaughter protest was the first of its kind in India, where Muslims and low-key dalites have often been attacked by the issue in the past.
Four men have been arrested so far in connection with the killing of Singh, while more than two dozen people face charges, including rioting and destruction of property. Seven Muslims, including two minors aged 11 and 12 were also accused of cops by the police.
A video allegedly shows the moments that led to the death of the police on Wednesday.
While the police said they were still looking for Raj, from the Hindu right-wing Bajrang Dal, we reported on Wednesday that he had issued a video, alleged innocence and contradictory statements about the incident.
Raj claimed that he was not present at Chingrawathi, where the violent protests broke out over the alleged embrace in the nearby Mahawbyen Bulandshahr district.
Raj claimed instead that he was at a police station in Syana, a city near Bulandshahr, where he said he had gone to register a report about the incident.
At the same time, the police in Uttar Pradesh suggested a “conspiracy” behind the violence because it occurred that tens of thousands of Muslims gathered for a religious holiday nt in Bulandshahr.
Uttar Pradesh Chief of Minister Yogi Adityanath, a hard Hindu monk who is famous for its anti-Muslim remarks, called a meeting in the state capital Lucknow on Tuesday.
At the time of the event, Adityanath to the neighboring state of Chhattisgarh as a campaign for ruling Bharatiya Janata Party BJP ) before the local assembly election.
An inquiry into allegations of killing was ordered by Adityanath, but local reports said he did not take up Singh’s death in the Lucknow meeting.
“The UP Chief Minister addressed officials for a thorough probe in the incident. Instructions were also issued to take stringent action against people involved in cow slaughter, “said a senior official to journalists after the meeting.
Adityanath is expected to visit Singh’s family on Thursday, announced the Indian news agency ANI.
A special investigation team was formed by the Uttar Pradesh government to investigate the cause of the violence.
At the same time, the slain officer’s family claimed a police conspiracy and demanded justice for his death.
Singh was a part of the team who initially investigated the infamous 2015 lynch of Mohammad Akhlaq, a 52-year-old resident in Bisara village, over allegations of icing in a district bordering Bulandshahr.
India’s Hindu majority consider cows as holy and their slaughter is forbidden in most Indian states
Hindu vigilants often flood the roads of northern India to protect cows, which often results in abuse of India’s Muslim population – about 14 percent of the country’s 1.3 billion people.
In recent years there has been a series of fatal attacks on Muslims and perhaps more about cattle slaughter and meat consumption.
According to the data analysis website India Spend reported nearly 80 cases of correlated violence in India between 2012 and 2017.
At least 39 people have been killed in such violence since 2014 when the Hindu nationalist BJP, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, came to power.
Since India leads to important elections in the next few months, including the national elections at the beginning of next year, y is afraid of such polarizing problems will continue to be raised by the Hindus far far more mobilizing voters.
