A soldier has emerged as a key suspect in the killing of a police inspector in mob frenzy over cow slaughter in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr on Monday. Police sources say they are investigating whether Jeetu Fauji, an army jawan posted in Srinagar, could have fired the shot that killed Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh.
A senior officer investigating the incident said it is too soon to say conclusively that Jeetu Fauji is the one who shot inspector Singh. Two police teams have been sent to Jammu and Kashmir to track down Jeetu Fauji, who is seen in various videos of the mob violence in Bulandshahr.
Four people have been arrested for the mob violence which erupted after cow carcasses were found scattered in a forest near a village.
