"He worked with utter honesty and took all the responsibility on himself. This is not the first incident when he faced the situation bravely. He had bullet injury twice before. But now nobody is giving him justice. Justice will be done only when his killers are killed," Kumar's wife said.
Subodh Kumar was killed in the violence, which took place after the carcasses of 25 cattle were found in the forests close to a police post, with the locals alleging that those carcasses were of the cows, which were slaughtered illegally. A local youth was also killed in the violence.
According to sources, the post-mortem examination conducted on Subodh Kumar confirms gunshot injury by .32 mm bore bullet on his head. Till now, four people have been arrested in connection with the killing of the police officer.
"Law and order is usually good here but the police were kept in dark about the Islamic congregation that happened here, which caused chaos. This is the cause of this violence," said Bhola Singh, Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Bulandshahr.
