UP : Hamirpur SP suspended after 2 killed in police firing


Two villagers were killed in mob violence and police firing in Hamirpur district of Uttar Pradesh after a girl immolated herself on being teased by some youths. An official spokesman said in Lucknow that taking note of the incident, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who is abroad, ordered immediate suspension of SP D P Singh.

He has also ordered magisterial inquiry into the entire incident besides arrest of those involved after registering FIR.

Police said the mob attacked Biwanr police station in Hamirpur to demand registering of an FIR against the accused, who allegedly abetted the 15-year-old girl to commit suicide. Eyewitnesses said that a number of villagers torched a police vehicle and seized some vehicles prompting police to open fire, resulting in injuries to three persons.

Of the three, two died during treatment, while condition of another was stated to be stable. District administration has announced compensation of 5 lakh rupees to the deceased and one lakh rupees for the injured.
The incident drew spontaneous flak from opposition parties which accused the Samajwadi Party government of failing to control law and order in the state.

Leader of the Opposition in state Assembly Swami Prasad Maurya alleged that SP goons misbehaved with the girl and the state police patronised them and opened fire at villagers. BJP state chief Laxmikant Bajpai said Samajwadi Party goons were involved in the incident. Congress sadvertise-with-us TIApokesman Dwijendra Tripathi said UP is the only state where criminals are patronised by a political party.
