Mother of Bihar cop dies of shock after her son mob lynched in West Bengal, 7 policemen suspended for fleeing the scene

The family members of Bihar SHO Ashwini Kumar allege that he has been murdered in West Bengal under a conspiracy.

A 50-year-old police officer from Bihar was lynched by a mob while conducting a raid in West Bengal’s Uttar Dinajpur district in the wee hours of Saturday. In an unfortunate update to the incident, the mother of SHO Ashwini Kumar died of shock upon seeing the mortal remains of her son.

In a heart-wrenching incident, the mortal remains of the mother and the son were taken for the final rites together. On Saturday evening, Kumar’s mother had reached home from her maternal home.

But unable to bear with the sudden loss, she passed away on Sunday morning.

Ashwini Kumar’s brother Praveen Kumar said that their mother is a heart patient for last 14-15 years, and she could not tolerate the news of her son’s death. Their father had died last year, and she had started to recover from that grief, when this incident happened. News of her son’s death totally broke her, and she died within 24 hours of her son’s death.

The family members of SHO Ashwini Kumar allege that he has been murdered under a conspiracy. They also questioned the police force that accompanied SHO Kumar on the delay in action to save him and why the West Bengal Police was not kept in the loop about the raid.

Seven police personnel, including Inspector Manish Kumar, have been suspended for negligence who abandoned SHO Kumar and fled from the spot of violence when the SHO was attacked by the mob. The suspended policemen include Raju Sahni, Akhileshwar Tiwari, Pramod Kumar Paswan, Ujjwal Kumar Paswan, Sunil Chaudhary and Sushil Kumar.
