Condemning the attack, the IPS Association recognised the risks police officers take in the wake of disruptive mob mobilisations.
"We condemn the lethal attack on UP police Inspector Subodh Singh, recognise his bravery & risks police officers are exposed to because of disruptive mob mobilisations. We demand the strongest action against perpetrators & instigators," read a tweet on the Association's official Twitter handle.
Singh lost his life on Monday in the clashes that erupted over the presence of illegal animal slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr city and was also the Investigating officer (IO) of the Akhlaq lynching case.
As per the police, clashes began after locals found cattle carcass in the nearby area.
