Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) O.P. Singh on Wednesday said that the violence that took place in Bulandshahr over the alleged illegal slaughter of 25 cows leading to the death of police officer Subodh Kumar Singh, is not just a law and order issue but part of a larger conspiracy.
“The incident in Bulandshahr is a big conspiracy. This is not only a law and order issue, how did the cattle carcass reach there? Who brought it, why & under what circumstances?,” Singh told news agency ANI.

“We are also looking into the angle to check whether the timing was a suspect and whether it coincided with December 6 which also happens to be the anniversary for Babri Masjid demolition,” a CNN News18 report quoted Singh as saying.
Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has not even spoken a word on the death of the police officer but has only focussed on the issue of cow slaughter.
He has asked the officers to speed up the investigation process and arrest those involved in the cow slaughter.
Later, in another statement, Adityanath stated that he would meet the family of the killed policeman.

The second statement came after the first statement was released and was a clear attempt to control the damage caused by ignoring this aspect in the first statement.
Police officer Subodh Kumar Singh was killed by a mob when the former went to control the violence caused over the slaughter of 25 cows in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr.
The police became the target of the mob when they tried to clear a road which had been blocked by the angry protesters. The uncontrollable mob started chasing police and threw stones at them.
Singh suffered a injury in his head with the stones thrown at them by the mob. While his driver put him into his SUV and drove to take him to hospital, the mob chased the car.
The mob was able to corner the car in a field and shot Singh.
