Just days after Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was killed in a clash that broke out in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr over allegations of cow slaughter, the state government on Saturday made a series of administrative changes.

According to an article in Indian Express, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Krishna Bahadur Singh was transferred to the DG headquarters in Lucknow. Sitapur Superintendent of Police (SP) Prabhakar Chaudhary was brought in to replace him.

Two other police officers were also transferred by the government; Syana Circle Officer DSP Satya Prakash Sharma was “sent to Police Training College in Moradabad” and Chingravathi police station in-charge Suresh Kumar was transferred to Lalitpur.

“The development comes a day after ADG (Intelligence) S B Shiradkar, who was asked to probe the violence over allegations of cows being killed, submitted his report to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.”
