Bulandshahr violence: Who put cattle carcasses at the spot, asks Azam Khan

New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Dec 4: In the aftermath of the Bulandshahr mob violence voices from various quarters are being made. Samajwadi Party leader and former Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Azam Khan on Tuesday questioned the circumstances leading to murder of UP Inspector Subodh Kumar and asserted that if the carcasses found were indeed of cattle, police must probe as to how the animal remains were brought at the said spot.

In the same video, apparently shot by locals, youths are seen running around the vehicle and identifying that the SHO has been shot. They run away thereafter and converge on the main road mouthing obscenities. A post-mortem report later confirmed that the officer suffered both gunshot injuries and was also hit by a hard and blunt object. The officer had probed the lynching of a Muslim man in Dadri, also over allegations of cow slaughter.Azam Khan said, "In Bulandshahr two people have been killed. If Special Investigation Team is investigating the case they must also investigate as to who brought the carcass there as there is no minority population in that particular area. In the whole crowd, there was no such person as well."

He also asserted that the situation could have been much worse and said, "In the city, there were people returning from a religious congregation and this incident could have taken a bad shape."Khan also cast aspersions over the investigation-led by the SIT and said, "SIT should probe all different aspects of the case. However, we can't say much about SIT. How can we say that SIT probe will be free of any bias when CBI itself is not being called impartial? The police controlled the situation in a good way after the situation. I hope it would remain under control in future as well," he said. With each passing moment, new revelations and arrests are being made.
