UP criminals move around town holding placards, vow to stay away from criminal activities

Two longtime criminals in UP, Salim Ali and Irshad Ahmed carried placards and marched around town with vows to stay away from crimes.

According to a report in Times of India, the two criminals, who have a long list of crimes in Kairana town carried placards that said, “I will never get involved in any crime and earn money by fair and honest means. Please forgive us.”

The criminals are afraid that they might get shot by the UP police in one of the encounters. The criminals said that they want to turn away from crime for good and they want to live life peacefully with their families. Amidst the ongoing crackdown on the criminals by UP police, they are scared of being hunted down like others.

Both Salim and Arshad also met Shamli SP Ajay Pal Sharma and handed over to him an affidavit with the same pledge. Bhagwat Singh, the station officer in Kairana said that both criminals have several cases of loot and murder against them and are currently out on bail. SP Sharma also acknowledged the criminals meeting him and said that it is good that they want to turn away from crime and the main goal of the police is to ensure that criminals leave a life of crime. He also added that their pledge reflects the fear of police among criminals and that is essential to maintain law and order. He asserted that the police will continue to keep a watch over them anyway.

Shamli SP Ajay Pal Sharma in the past months has earned the tag of ‘encounter specialist’ in UP. He has gunned down at least six dreaded criminals and injured several others.

After Yogi Adityanath took over as CM in UP, the state has seen a severe crackdown on criminals by the police. Law and Order was one of the main focus of Yogi Adityanath’s poll campaign and his government has taken it seriously. UP has seen several encounters in the recent months where many dreaded criminals were eliminated and hundreds have been arrested. Despite repeated notices from the National Human Rights Commission, Yogi Adityanath’s government has maintained its stance on encounters.

Yesterday, speaking in the UP state Legislative Council, Yogi Adityanath announced that the police encounters in UP won’t stop. Hinting towards the opposition and its failure to maintain Law and Order in past tenures, he added that everyone knows who has been giving patronage to criminals and his government will continue its crackdown. UP has seen over 1200 encounters in the recent months.

Recently, UP police also have called out a fake news circulated by Amnesty India regarding the number of criminals shot in encounters and asserted its commitment to put a stop to criminal activities.

Amnesty India had deleted their tweet after UP police’s reply. As a result of the continuous encounters, many UP criminals have also been surrendering in fear and crime rates are on a significant decline in the state.
