The car of Hindu Yuva Vahini’s (HYV) Lucknow district convener has allegedly ran over a one-year-old calf in Nivada, in Janakipuram area of the city on Wednesday. Notably, HYV is a social organisation formed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with an aim to protect cows.

Police have filed a case against unidentified persons on the basis of complaint of the calf’s owner. Rajrani, a resident of Nivada, alleged that a group of people in a drunken state started their car from near a liquor shop around 7.30. The car ran over the calf, which was tied nearby with a cow. The calf died after it was dragged for about 20 metres, said Rajrani.

“The driver started the car and hit the calf, which was tied near the wine shop. The animal was dragged up to the spot where the road had turned. There he stopped the vehicle, as it was could not be moved anymore… A few locals had noticed the incident… Soon, all those inside the car left the car and fled,” said Rajrani  as per the report in Indian Express.

Driver was drunk and liquor bottles were found in the car, alleged her son. Police have filed a case under sections 279 (rash driving) and 429 (mischief by killing or maiming cattle) of the IPC against unidentified persons.

“The car has been seized but its owner is yet to be identified… A letter is being sent to the Regional Transport Officer to know its owner. Once we find the owner, we would be able to question him about who was driving the vehicle at the time of the incident,” said Janakipuram Station Officer Satish Kumar Sinha said.

However, locals claimed that the car belonged to Akhand Pratap Singh, Lucknow district convener of HYV.
