In the case of cow slaughter of Bulandshahr, the authorities have went ahead and named two children, 11 and 12, as accused.
It is said that this eventually led to cow slaughter allegations that led to a frenzied mob murdering a police officer in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandhshar.
The boys, who are cousins, are among seven named in a complaint of cow slaughter filed after carcasses were found strewn around in a forest near village Nayabans in Bulandshahr.
The complainant is the Yogesh Raj, who is a Bajrang Dal activist.
It need be mentioned that police have booked a few for mob killing of inspector Subodh Kumar Singh.
Yogesh Raj is seen in a video arguing with the police and demanding action against cow slaughter on Monday.
It is said that the situation then went out of hand and a mob attacked policemen, burnt the police outpost and set vehicles on fire.
Sources in the UP police say any questioning or arrests will take place only after an investigation.
Asked about the children’s names as accused, they said they were duty-bound to include the names as given to them by the complainant.>
