The Bulandshahr SSP is being replaced after the ADG, Intelligence, submitted a report on the violence over an alleged cow slaughter, which claimed the lives of a police officer and a youth.

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government Saturday transferred Bulandshahr SSP Krishna Bahadur Singh to the DGP office here, five days after two people, including an inspector, were killed in violence following an alleged cow slaughter incident.

Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said that the Senior Superintendent of Police will be replaced by Sitapur SP Prabhakar Chaudhary.

Additional Director General (ADG) Intelligence SB Shiradkar had Friday submitted a report on the violence. Based on it, the government transferred two other policemen of Bulandshahr — Circle Officer Syana Satya Prakash Sharma and Chingravati police chowki in-charge Suresh Kumar.

On December 3, Inspector Subodh Singh and a local youth, Sumit, were killed in violence over an alleged cow slaughter incident in the city.

  1. Very unfortunate that the CM is calling this an “ accident “. Also that the death of the cows, which may conceivably have been due to natural causes, is regarded as more worthy of investigation than the murder of a police officer on duty.
