Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday transferred Bulandshahr SSP Krishna Bahadur Singh to the DGP office in Lucknow and two other police officials in connection to the mob violence in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh earlier this week where an inspector and a civilian were killed.

Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said that the Senior Superintendent of Police will be replaced by Sitapur SP Prabhakar Chaudhary.

Acting on a report submitted by the Additional Director General of Police S.B. Shiradkar, Circle Officer (CO) Satya Prakash Sharma and Suresh Kumar, the in-charge of Chingravathi police chowki, have been transferred for their failure in responding in time to the situation arising on Monday in that area.

A senior home department official said that they have been taken to task for not being fast enough in reacting to the situation that arose after some Hindu right-wing activists found some animal carcasses in the field and took them on tractor trolleys to block a road.

Police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh and the civilian from Chingravathi village, Sumit Singh, were killed in the mob violence thereafter.

The action was taken after a high-level meeting was presided over by the Director General of Police (DGP) O.P. Singh, who had handed over the report to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on his arrival from New Delhi.

CM Yogi Adityanath has termed the Bulandshahr incident an accident. Earlier, Yogi stated that the incident was result of a big conspiracy, but addressing a media on Friday in new Delhi, he said that the incident was actually an accident.

"Uttar Pradesh mein koi mob lynching ki ghatna nahi hui hai... Bulandshahr mein jo hua wo ek durghatna thi (No mob lynching happened in Uttar Pradesh, what happened in Bulandshahr is an accident)," he said.

The police have arrested nine accused but the main conspirator Yogesh Raj, the district convener of the Bajrang Dal, continues to be at large.

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.
