 Bulandshahr: Yogesh Raj, a key accused in the mob violence in Bulandshahr in which a police inspector and a civilian were killed, has been arrested, police said Thursday.

Raj, the local convenor of Bajrang Dal, had been absconding since the violent incident of 3 December. He was arrested around 11.30 PM on Wednesday in the night from the Khurja T-point on National Highway 91, the police said.

Earlier on Wednesday, Satish and Vineet, accused of violence, and Azhar, accused in the cow slaughtering case, had surrendered in the local court in Bulandshahr.

“Yes, Yogesh Raj has been arrested. He is undergoing a medical examination and would be produced in the local court later today for legal proceedings,” Circle Officer (Siyana) Raghvendra Kumar Mishra said Thursday morning. 

In Bulandshahr, a protest against illegal cow slaughter erupted into riots, resulting in the death of two; a police officer named Subodh Kumar Singh and a protesting youth. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath described the violence as an “accident” and denied the occurrence of mob lynchings in Uttar Pradesh even though the DGP hinted about the possibility of a larger conspiracy behind the incident aimed at inciting communal violence in the area.

Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh and civilian Sumit Kumar, 20, were killed of bullet shots during the mob violence. 

An FIR against 27 named people and 50 to 60 unidentified people was registered at the Siyana Police Station for the violence that was witnessed at Chingrawathi police post after cattle carcasses were found strewn outside nearby Mahaw village of the district.

A separate FIR was lodged by the police for cow slaughter on a complaint by Raj.
