India nabs 4 after deadly violence over cow slaughter rumors

Its chief minister Yogi Adityanath, a firebrand Hindu priest turned politician, has pushed for slaughterhouses to be closed and cow shelters to be constructed.

The state dispensation also announced that an educational institute will also be named after Singh.

Hindu vigilantes often roam the roads in northern India to protect cows, frequently resulting in assaults against India's Muslim population - some 14 percent of the country's 1.3 billion people. They were demanding the police take immediate action to find out who was responsible for the alleged slaughter of cows.

He says that when "we were still at the police station we got to know that villagers were pelting stones".

Subodh was shot dead on Monday violence at Chingrawati checkpost after the police team was outnumbered by the mob protesting cow slaughter.

Uttar Pradesh police chief O P Singh suggested there was conspiracy behind the violence.With lakhs of people collected for a "Tabligi Ijtema", a congregation of Muslims, 40 km from Mahaw village where the cattle carcasses were found, police also succeeded in containing what could have been a communal riot, he told PTI.Security was visibly reduced but tension persisted in Chingrawathi, Mahaw and Naya Bans villages of Bulandshahr's Siyana tehsil on Wednesday. According to Singh's sister, his killing was a conspiracy on the police's part and he was killed because he was investigating the Akhlaq case. It can be clearly seen in the video how violent and angry the people were who chasing police vehicles.

The police personnel tried to reason with the crowd, and requested the mob to calm down.

How is that so few policemen went out to accost a clearly violent crowd of people, and majority fled the spot, leaving the station house officer to deal with the scene single-handedly and lose his life? They may have been angry over the police's and the administration's failures in preventing the alleged slaughter of the cattle, but the violent means they adopted can not be condoned.

She told Adityanath that her husband could not visit home often as he remained very busy, and would call her to the police station, saying he missed her and their two sons.

Mr Bhati said Yogesh Raj should surrender.

Prashant Kumar said the protestors from Mahaw village and nearby areas pelted stones on the police and indulged in arson, setting ablaze vehicles and Chingarwathi Police Chowki.

Some officers managed to flee inside and hide in the police station, but Mr Asrey and another officer ran to the SUV to escape. The release did not say anything about Singh's death. Focussing his attack on Kumar, he further claimed that it was "inspector who did not wish to get FIR registered".

Chaudhary said her suspected attackers were arrested and three policemen suspended for dereliction of duties.

Mr Asrey was injured but survived. Men could be heard in the video asking whether he was dead or alive while gunshots kept going off in the background.

Singh is survived by his wife and two sons.

Speaking in Hindi throughout the almost two-minute long video, the man said police were attempting to portray him as someone with a criminal record. "They snatched arms, mobiles and cartridges of police".
