New Delhi :
The Congress on Tuesday slammed the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath over the “cold-blooded” murder of Bulandshahr inspector Subodh Kumar Singh by cow vigilantes. Launching a scathing attack on the Uttar Pradesh CM, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that instead of taking care of his own state, Yogi Adityanath was busy ‘spewing venom’ in Telangana.
“It is shocking how a mob killed a police officer investigating the Akhlaq case (2015 Dadri mob lynching). Who gives these people the authority to take law in their hands? Instead of taking care of his state, Yogi is going to Telangana and spewing venom,” ANI quoted Sibal as saying.
The cold-blooded killing of the policeman in Bulandshahr by cow vigilantes has once again brought back the horror of 'Jungle Raj' (lawlessness) in Uttar Pradesh. The cop died of a gunshot allegedly fired by a mob protesting the “cow slaughter” in the area.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has landed the Uttar Pradesh chief minister in Telangana for campaigning for the December 7 Assembly elections in the state. Recently, Yogi Adityanath had stirred a controversy with his statement that if the BJP comes to power in the state, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi will have to flee Hyderabad just like Nizam did.
Reacting to the incident, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said that the incident has let down the humanity and appealed to people to stay cautious of people creating unrest.
"What happened in Bulandshahr has let down humanity. State govt has said that whoever is responsible will be brought to justice without any bias. I appeal to people to stay cautious of the elements who are creating unrest for their own interests," Naqavi said.
Meanwhile, the family of the killed cop has alleged that Singh was murdered because he was investigating the 2015 Dadri mob lynching incident in which a Muslim man Mohammed Akhlaq was killed on suspicion of storing beef at his home.
“My brother was investigating Akhlaq case and that is why he was killed. It’s a conspiracy by Police. He should be declared martyr and memorial should be built. We do not want money. CM only keeps saying cow cow cow,” sister of the deceased cop said.
