Cong demands probe by sitting HC judge in Bulandshahr violence

Agency News

New Delhi, Dec 4: Expressing concern over the violence in Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress on Tuesday demanded a probe by a sitting judge of the high court in the incident.

Talking to reporters here, AICC spokesperson Kapil Sibal said, ''Before 2014 Modijji said he would bring ‘badlav’ (change). However, no badlav is being seen. Rather, one is seeing ‘badla’ (revenge), corruption and politicking in name of Lord Ram and Hanuman.

Look at the badlav in Bulandshahr. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s own minister Om Prakash alleged that people from Bajrang Dal, RSS and VHP hatched a conspiracy which resulted in murder of inspector Subodh Kumar. This means there is clash happening between police persons in Uttar Pradesh and Bajrang Dal. Nearly 400 people attacked the police station and burnt police vehicles and snatched their mobiles and then killed the policemen. Was this the change that Modiji was talking about. We feel that justice can only be done if a probe is carried out by a sitting judge of the high court.’’

Charging the UP Chief Minister with taking the incident lightly, Mr Sibal said, ''when the incident was happening, Mr Yogi Adityanath was watching a light-and-sound show in Gorakhpur with Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh. Perhaps he did not want to hear the painful cries of the family of the slain policemen. He was taking it lightly. His silence on policeman being martyred was highly insensitive.’’ (UNI)
