Lucknow, December 6: The family of slain policeman Inspector Subodh Singh on Thursday met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at his residence. Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was lynched by a violent mob in Bulandshahr last week. The mob was allegedly led by Yogesh Raj, member of Bajrang Dal, who claimed that seven men slaughtered cows in village Mahaw. Yogesh Raj has been absconding.

On Wednesday, a video surfaced suggesting that the murder of Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh by a violent mob in Bulandshahr and Sumit, a 20-year-old youth, could be linked.
