BSP supremo Mayawati today demanded a CBI probe into the recent killing of five Brahmins in Rae Bareli, days after accusing the Yogi Adityanath government with failing to do justice in the incident.
She also demanded adequate security and financial assistance to the next of kin of the deceased.
Her demand came after party MP S C Misra visited the village to meet the affected families to help them get justice and submitted a report to her.
The BSP supremo has asked her MLAs to raise the matter along with other law and order issues effectively in the ongoing Budget session of the state assembly.
"The killing of five Brahmins is like a step towards jungle raj... The Yogi government appears to have totally failed in doing justice with the bereaved families," the BSP chief said in a press release.
Claiming that people's lives have been hit hard due to bad law and order and crime against women, Mayawati said the Rae Bareli incident was being regarded as a "massacre" by BJP ministers also.
She also flayed the Adityanath government for "doing politics" in such issues as well.
"This incident has agitated Brahmins and they are on warpath to seek justice whereas Adityanath government's attitude towards it is just like the one it had at the time of Saharanpur clash," she said.
On June 26, a village head was among three persons beaten to death by a mob while two others were burnt alive after heated arguments over the ownership of a plot of land in Apta village here.
