SSP Krishna Bahadur Singh has been replaced by Sitapur Superintendent of Police Prabhakar Chaudhary. Krishna Bahadur has been transferred to Director General of Police Headquarters in Lucknow. Other two police officers transferred include Syana Circle Officer Satya Prakash Sharma and Chingravathi police station in-charge Suresh Kumar.
Actually, on Monday violence broke out in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr where people turned into mob who got out of control on ‘cow slaughter’ issue. Two people were lynched including a police officer Subodh Kumar Singh. And that’s not all, he was probing another case related to cow slaughter which is Akhlaq’s lynching case.
The case is being investigated. According to NDTV, a soldier has also been detained in relation with the case. He is being considered as the key suspect in killing of Subodh Kumar.
There has been immense rise in mob-lynching cases across India, especially in the name of ‘cow protection’ in last 4 years. How will BJP government guarantee a control over these cases while its playing the same ‘divide-and-rule’ politics? And, transfer of three policemen over Bulandshahr violence has happened; Is this enough to stop mob-lynching culture in India?
