Premature to say Intelligence failure in Bulandshahr violence: ADG Anand Kumar

Lucknow | Uttar Pradesh ADG Law and Order Anand Kumar on Tuesday ruled out the allegations of Intelligence failure in the Bulandshahr violence.

Addressing a press conference, Anand Kumar said, “It would be premature to say it was an intelligence failure or failure of any other agency. No action will be taken against any policeman till the probe is complete.” Speaking on the development in the matter, the officer said, “Four people have been arrested. I don’t know about the organizations yet, but the main accused in the violence is Yogesh Raj who has not been arrested till now.”

The ADG further informed that a bullet has been recovered from the body of Sumit, who died in Bulandshahr violence yesterday. The final post-mortem report will ascertain the bore of the bullet.

Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, who had initially probed the 2015 lynching of Mohammed Akhlaq, and a 20-year-old local man died of gunshot injuries on Monday as a rampaging mob protesting alleged illegal cow slaughter torched a police post in Bulandshahr and clashed with cops.
