Amidst ‘Jai Shri Ram’ chants, 6 Bulandshahr violence accused welcomed with garlands after being released on bail

On December 3rd last year, violence broke out in Bulandshahr after carcasses of cows were found in a field in Mahav village near Chingravati, Bulandshahr.

In a video which has been going viral on social media, six men accused of instigating mob violence that led to the killing of police inspector Subodh Singh in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr on December 3, 2018, are being seen welcomed with garlands amid chants of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ after being released on bail yesterday.

The six accused- Shikhar Agarwal, Hemu, Upendra Raghav, Jeetu Fauji, Saurav and Rohit Raghav were not only welcomed with garlands but the supporters also took turns at clicking selfies and pictures with them.

The Yogi Adityanath-led government in Uttar Pradesh had given its permission on June 28 to slap sedition charges on 44 persons accused of inciting violence in Chingravati area of Bulandshahr which claimed lives of two people, including that of one police personnel.

A bloodthirsty mob had run riot in the region after locals had discovered carcasses of cows in a field in Mahav village near Chingravati, Bulandshahr on December 3rd last year. Angered with police inaction even after repeated complaints, the mob had clashed with the police. The protest turned violent where the police inspector Subodh Singh accidentally shot Sumit, a 17-year-old boy. Inspector Singh too died after he was shot at by someone in the mob.

Following the arrest of Prashant Natt, the man accused of killing Inspector Subodh Singh, the Uttar Pradesh Police had arrested one more youth, Kalua, on January 1, 2019, who had allegedly attacked Inspector Singh with an axe.

Some reports had then suspected a larger political conspiracy in the Bulandshahr cow slaughter case. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, too, had called the violence a political conspiracy hatched by those who had lost their political grounds.
