Lynching of Minorities in BJP-ruled States Continue with Impunity: Yechury


CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday alleged that lynching of minorities in BJP-ruled states “continue with impunity”, reacting to reports of a retired Army captain beaten to death by unidentified assailants in UP.64-year-old retired Army officer, Amanullah, was beaten to death on Saturday night in Godiyan ka Purva village in Amethi district, according to police.”Lynchings of minorities in BJP ruled states continues with impunity.

That the victim was a retired army officer only bears testimony to the level of hatred being fuelled by this political ideology where those responsible for punishing lynchers protect them,” he tweeted.

A 64-year-old retired Army captain was beaten to death by unidentified assailants in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi. The retired Army officer Amanullah and his wife were in their house when a group of people attacked them with sticks. The body has been sent for post-mortem and further investigation is underway.

The reason behind the attack has not been ascertained. The incident took place on Saturday night in Godiyan ka Purva village under Kamrauli police station limits.

The attackers attacked Amanullah across the head due to which he died on the spot, his son said in his statement. He further said that no family member other than his parents were in the house when the attack took place.

Earlier the opposition parties had accused the Yogi Adityanath government of not doing anything to control the failing law and order situation in the state.

In June, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a review meeting with senior officials to review law and order situation in the state after the state witnessed an increase in rape and mob lynching incidents.

In May, just days after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Union minister Smriti Irani’s close aide Surendra Singh was shot dead while he was sleeping outside his house. Singh’s murder prompted Smriti Irani to come down to Amethi where she met the family of the deceased and even attended the cremation.
