Meanwhile, four persons were arrested on Tuesday after police lodged an FIR against over two dozen people for rioting and murder in connection with the violence in Bulandshahr. As many as 27 people were named in the FIR, registered around 3 am, while cases have been lodged against 50 to 60 unidentified people.
Violent protests erupted in Bulandshahr on Monday over alleged illegal slaughterhouses in the area. During the clash, a Police Inspector Subodh Singh was killed, which has further ignited the case.
Earlier in the day, the family members of the deceased Singh demanded that Singh should be given the honour of a ‘martyr’ and that the state government should create a memorial in his name.
