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.

  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.
