On October 8, BJP leader Chaudhary Yashpal Singh was gunned down in a similar manner in Deoband. Prior to that, another BJP leader Kabir Tiwari, also a former student leader, was shot dead in Basti. The murder of Tiwari had led to student groups going on a rampage and burning down government vehicles. Later, Basti SP Pankaj Kumar was transferred and a departmental inquiry was initiated against him.

Speaking to the media Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Avanish Awasthi had said that the initial findings suggested Pankaj Kumar’s negligence in handling the cases. Awasthi had said that Kumar has been found guilty of irresponsible functioning and was found that he did not properly ensure the checklist issued by the DIG Range.
