Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday described Bulandshahr violence, in which two people including a Police Inspector were killed, as a political conspiracy. Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, Yogi Adityanath warned of strict against against those trying to disturb peace in the state and said law will deal with them accordingly. 

"The incident in Bulandshahr was a conspiracy. It was planned by same people who were behind the incident in which several people were killed by consuming spurious liquor. No one will be spared," CM Adityanath said.

Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh and civilian Sumit Kumar, 20, were killed of bullet shots during the mob violence on December 3. 

One of the main suspects among the 27 named in the FIR, local Bajrang Dal leader Yogesh Raj, is still absconding, while an Army jawan, Jitendra Malik, has been arrested and remanded in custody.  

The police arrested five persons on Tuesday for their alleged roles in the mob violence. While three of them were arrested by the Bulandshahr police for their involvement in the cow slaughtering case, two accused were nabbed by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) for the subsequent violence on December 3.

"Three men – Nadeem, Raees and Kaala – have been arrested for their role in the cow slaughtering incident. A vehicle and a licensed weapon have also been recovered from their possession,” Bulandshahr Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Prabhakar Chaudhary said.

He said the trio was not named in the initial FIR, which had seven accused including two minors of Nayabans village, but during probe their names emerged in the case.
