Bulandsahar Violence:Subodh Kumar’s family had been demanding to meet CM Yogi Adityanath
Lucknow/Meerut:MNN:After an Uttar Pradesh inspector was murdered in mob frenzy over cow slaughter allegations in Bulandsahar Violence.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath today met the family of Inspector Subodh Kumar who was killed during mob violence in Bulandshahr on Monday.
The family of the killed cop, including son Shrey Pratap, met Adityanath at his official residence here.
“We met the CM and he assured us that we will get justice,” he later told news agency ANI.
The family members of Subodh Kumar had been demanding to meet Adityanath with his sister demanding that he be declared a martyr and a memorial be created.
While Adityanath had been on campaigning duties for BJP for most parts of the week, state government officials maintained that he is aware of the developments and that he is monitoring the situation.
On Tuesday, he reviews the law and order situation with the Chief Secretary and other top officials in Lucknow but did not make any public comment on the killing of the officer in Bulandsahar Violence.
Adityanath also sought action against those involved in cow slaughter and called the “incident” part of a big conspiracy.
Meanwhile, the post-mortem report confirmed that Subodh Kumar had died due to a bullet injury and not due to stone pelting.
Bulandshahr District Magistrate, Anuj Kumar Jha, said that a bullet hit the police inspector near his left eyebrow.
“In the post-mortem, gunshot injury has been confirmed to late Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh.
Bullet entered near left eyebrow and is inside skull,” said the District Magistrate.

The entire incident took place after a mob got violent over suspicions of illegal cow slaughter.
Protesting villagers, from Mahaw village and nearby areas, vandalised at least 15 vehicles and even set some of them on fire.
In the Bulandsahar Violence, Subodh Kumar and a youth 20 year old Sumit kumar died.
The main accused in Bulandsahar Violence, Yogesh Raj, remains missing.
Three have been arrested. Four others arrested since the Monday incident are accused in a separate case of cow slaughter, which was filed by Yogesh Raj.
Yogesh Raj, a Bajrang Dal activist, has sent out a WhatsApp video proclaiming his innocence.
Bulandshahr violence who slaughtered cows thats the bigger question meerut inspector general ram kumar
Inspector General Ram Kumar said evidence was required for the police to act.
“We can only act on evidence. We need to do forensic tests. It is not clear who shot the police officer, who shot Sumit (the second man killed in mob violence),” the police officer says.
“But who was behind cow slaughter…who was behind the cow conspiracy.
This is a bigger question than catching a person who’s on video, against whom there is no forensic proof…” Ram Kumar said.
The comments appeared to reinforce the impression that the police and administration had instructions to prioritise investigations and arrests in the cow slaughter case.
