The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The Polit Bureau strongly condemns the brutal killing of police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh by a mob in Bulandshhahr district of Uttar Pradesh. Along with him an innocent bystander was also shot dead.
The sudden eruption of violent protests took place on the pretext of cow slaughter due to carcasses found in dubious circumstances in a village in Siana area. This fits in with the pattern of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and other Hindutva outfits instigating communal tensions.
Such incidents are planned in view of the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. The communally provo, cative speeches being made by Chief Minister Adityanath have also created an atmosphere for the mobs to act with impunity.
Firm action should be taken against those who have perpetrated this crime and all steps should be taken to ensure that no communal incidents occur.
