UP govt, BJP had no role in welcoming Bulandshahr violence accused: UP Deputy CM KP Maurya

A video which surfaced yesterday showed supporters of these accused welcoming them amidst 'Jai Shri Ram' and 'Vande Matram'.

A day after a video showing the six accused in Bulandshahr violence being welcomed with garlands and loud chants after getting bail went viral on social media, the Uttar Pradesh deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya has distanced the government and BJP from the incident saying that they had no role to play in it.

Accusing the opposition of “making a mountain of a molehill”, Maurya was quoted as saying: “If supporters of someone who have been released from jail welcome them, the government and BJP has nothing to do with it. Opposition must not make a mountain out of a molehill.”

Six accused of instigating mob violence that led to the killing of police inspector Subodh Singh in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr on December 3, 2018, were welcomed with garlands after they were released on bail yesterday.

A video which surfaced yesterday showed supporters of these accused welcoming them amidst ‘Jai Shri Ram’ and ‘Vande Matram’. The six accused were Shikhar Agarwal, Hemu, Upendra Raghav, Jeetu Fauji, Saurav and Rohit Raghav.

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.
