Meerut Police slams journalist for casting aspersions on police for registering fake cases

Journalist Rahul Kanwal last night tweeted how in Yogi Adityanath’s Uttar Pradesh, ‘ground report’ from Western UP shows cases of gang rape registered against aged father of the man who was killed in alleged ‘fake encounter’. He said that the case is not isolated but a ‘pattern’ has emerged.

Kanwal further said that those who questioned the encounters, police filed rape cases against the relatives of the one killed.

However, he was called out by ADG Zone Meerut Police who asked Kanwal to check facts before tweeting.

Recently, it has been reported that the criminals in UP are on a surrender spree, many even cancelling their bail bonds to head back to the prison. According to data provided by UP DGP’s office, as many as 142 wanted or criminals with rewards on their heads have surrendered either within the state or outside from 20th March 2017, soon after the new state government took over, on 31st January this year. Besides, there are 26 criminals who despite getting bail did not secure their release and 71 who got their bail bond cancelled and went back to jail. Notably, between 20th March last year to 14th February 2018, a total of 1240 encounters have taken place in the state which has led to arrest of 2956 criminals. 305 criminals were injured in encounters while 40 were killed. UP Police has also seized 169 properties worth Rs. 147 crore which belonged to the criminals.
