Kumar’s sister, Saroj Singh Chauhan alleged that her brother was killed through a planned conspiracy, as he was investigating the mob-lynching case of Mohammed Akhlaq, who was mob-lynched on 28 September 2015.
“My brother has been killed because he was investigating the Akhlaq murder case. This is a conspiracy. Why was my brother alone in his vehicle? Police are complacent in its role in the incident,” Chauhan said.
She also rejected the five million rupees of ex-gratia payment Yogi Government declared towards the family of the police officer, rather she has insisted to honor him as a ‘martyr’ and build a memorial in their village.
“What is this ‘gai-gai‘ (cow protection) our Chief Minister keeps uttering all the time? Why doesn’t he come on the ground and serve the cause of cow protection? It is my brother who has been killed,” she said.
My brother should be declared a martyr and a memorial must be made in his memory. What good is the 50,000 or 50 lakh rupees for us? We will return it. We want a martyr memorial in our village. I need nothing except honor for my brother,” she expressed angrily.
UP Police have identified the main conspirator as Yogesh Raj, a local Bajrang Dal activist. However, Police refuse to provide more details about the accused.
