Days after a police inspector and a local youth were killed after a violent mob protesting against alleged cow slaughter in Bulandshahr clashed with the cops, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath claimed that the incident was an “accident”. He asserted that there was “no mob lynching” either.
Meanwhile, acting on a report submitted by the Additional Director General of Police SB Shiradkar, Circle Officer (CO) Satya Prakash Sharma and Suresh Kumar, the in-charge of the police post, were transferred "for their failure in responding in time to the situation arising on Monday in that area", the police informed on Saturday.
As per sources, the content of the report submitted by ADG intelligence on Bulandshahr violence is as follows:
- A huge protest happened over report of cow slaughtering
- The disturbing elements had conspired to instigate violence
- The tension got escalated due to the late response from local administration and police officials
- The senior officials didn't reach the spot on time

- The local intelligence team failed to provide information about the conspiracy
- There was also a dearth of adequate force to deal with the agitating mob
- Despite of assurance from the police for registering an FIR over alleged cow slaughtering the mob went out of control
