UP: SC/ST commission takes suo moto cognizance of violence against SC community for not voting for SP candidate

Terming it a serious offense, the commission has asked the police to register the case under relevant IPC sections and enlist the incident under poll-post violent cases.

The Uttar Pradesh SC/ST commission has taken suo moto cognizance of violence reported against SC community members for not casting votes in favour of Mulayam Singh Yadav. The Samajwadi Party stalwart was the Mahagathbandhan candidate contesting from Mainpuri constituency in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections. The commission has directed SSP Mainpuri to register FIR against the miscreants and take swift actions against them.

The letter by the UP SC/ST commission reads, “it has come to our notice that violence was used against SC-ST people in the Lok Sabha constituency of Mainpuri who did not vote for the SP candidate Mulayam Singh Yadav in the elections. They were pounded with sticks and intimidated by gun firing. One of the members of the marginalized communities, BSF jawan Ramnaresh filed a complaint in the police station after fleeing away from the situation.”

According to a report, Yadavs of Nagala Mandhata attacked the people of scheduled castes in Unwa village for not voting for Mulayam Singh Yadav.
