Kasganj violence: 10 booked on charges of murder and rioting

The Congress delegation, to be led by former MLA Vivek Bansal, could not reach Kasganj as he was detained at his residence in Aligarh this morning.

R.P. Singh, the district magistrate of Kasganj, identified the arrested suspect as Mohammad Salim.

Bansal was going to Kasganj at the behest of the Congress central leadership.

"One of my friends informed me about rumours on the social media about me getting killed during the violence, but I was not present in Kasganj".

In a video from Uttar Pradesh's Kasganj, where communal clashes broke out on Republic Day, a group of men are seen on a road, armed with guns, clubs and sticks.

Chandan Gupta was killed in clashes after a mob on a motorcycle rally, taken out by members of RSS wings of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP), disturbed Republic Day celebrations in a Muslim-dominated locality of Kasganj.

The government conveyed to the Home Ministry that the police were investigating the case and all facts are being ascertained to know if the violence was pre-planned.

CM Adityanath asserted that those found guilty will not be spared.

Even as the state police arrested 110 people over the outbreak of violence, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath-speaking to reporters in Lucknow on Tuesday-said "our government is committed to provide security to each and every citizen". Life, however, appeared to be returning to normal.
