Lucknow, December 4: Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister and Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party chief Om Prakash Rajbhar on Tuesday accused Rashtriya Swanyamsewak Sangh (RSS), Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) for inciting violence in Bulandshehr. He also pointed fingers at Bharatiya Janata Party in connection with the case, in which the mob killed police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh on Monday.

Expressing his opinion on the violence for false rumours over the cow slaughter in Siyana village of Bulandshahr, Rajbhar said to the media, “This is a pre-planned conspiracy by VHP, Bajrang Dal and RSS, now police are even naming some BJP members. Why did protest happen on the same day as Muslim Ijtema event? It was an attempt to disturb the peace.” Bulandshahr Mob Violence: Bajrang Dal Leader Yogesh Raj Main Accused; VHP’s Upendra Raghav, BJYM’s Shikhar Agarwal Named in FIR Too

Condemning the violence and murder of police inspector Singh, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had said, “What happened in Bulandshahr has let down humanity.
