Peeved over the Uttar Pradesh government’s inept handling of the Bulandshahr violence ,  the National Human Rights Commission sent notices to the Uttar Pradesh government and the state’s police chief over the killing of a police inspector and a 20-year-old man in an incident of mob violence in Bulandshahr over alleged cow slaughter.

A day after the shocking incident, heavy security was deployed in the area and tension spiralled as the angry families of the victims demanded justice for their kin.

Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, who had probed the Mohammad Akhlaq lynching case initially, and 20-year-old Sumit Kumar died of gunshot injuries on Monday as a rampaging mob protesting against alleged illegal cow slaughter, torched a police post and clashed with the police personnel.

The commission, in the notices, has observed that it is ‘indicative of yet another incident of violent protest and rampaging by an unruly mob, exposing lawlessness and failure of the administration to tackle sensitive issues and situations’.
