NB: Indian citizens, IAS, IPS and judicial officials may note the brazen hypocrisy of the RSS and its allies - they condemn Naxalism from one side of their mouths whilst from the other side they defame police officials murdered trying to control mob violence. Open hooliganism is practised by those who make a big drama of their so-called patriotism. What a bloody joke! This murderous gang is dragging India into a cesspit of hate and lawlessness. Let us be warned - now that they are suffering electoral defeat, they will step up the communal rhetoric, which is the only language they know. They must not be allowed to destroy the Indian Constitution. DS
Days after a BJP MP came out in support of the main accused in the killing of SHO Subodh Kumar Singh following a brutal attack by a mob over the alleged killing of cows in Bulandshahr, another MP from the party, has chipped in, this time to point fingers at the slain policeman. Meerut MP Rajendra Agrawal told The Indian Express Sunday that the team investigating the violence last Monday should also check whether the SHO became a target because the station under his charge allegedly failed to check cow slaughter and cattle smuggling.
“Whatever has happened in Bulandshahr on December 3 leading to the death of the Siana Station House Officer in mob lynching is highly deplorable. But the probe team should also include within its purview why no action was taken by the SHO in connection with the FIR lodged regarding cow smuggling at the Siana police station before the violence,” Agarwal said. “If cow slaughter has been declared by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath as a serious crime, then we will have to look into the working of police stations, including Siana, over a broader time period. If we have to uproot the menace of cow slaughter, we will have to look at all aspects, down to the police station level,” Agrawal said.
