Uttar Pradesh block panchayat polls: BDC member’s brother-in-law killed by rival party candidate, supporters

Ahead of the voting for block panchayat polls in Uttar Pradesh, brother-in-law of a block development committee (BDC) member was allegedly killed by a BJP candidate’s husband and supporters when he was trying to stop them to abduct his relative.

The incident has reported on Thursday from Dinapurwa village of Bahraich district where the BJP candidate Sarita Yagyasaini’s husband Sudhir Yagyasaini, along with her supporters and a gunner, reached block development committee (BDC) member Yadurai Devi’s house.

The matter has been taken seriously and elaborate security arrangements have been made in the village.

The local residents alleged that they tried to abduct her to get her vote in the polls scheduled for July 10.

The police said Yadurai Devi’s brother-in-law Mayaram (60), who was hit with the pistol butt, died on the spot. The Superintendent of Police Sujata Singh said an FIR has been registered against 10 people, including Sudhir Yagyasaini and the gunner deployed for the security of his wife Sarita.

Acting on the matter, the Police have arrested two of the accused—Ram Bhulawan Shukla and Jitendra Kumar—and also the teams have been formed to arrest the others involved in the act. The SP said that the stringent National Security Act has been invoked against the accused in the case.

Samajwadi Party’s district president Ramharsh Yadav alleged that the Uttar Pradesh police are working as an BJP agent due to which his party members are indulging in such acts.

Meanwhile, in Kaushambi district’s Sirathu block, a police team raided the residence of an independent candidate, finding 18 BDC members present there. They were taken to the Saini police station and later released after the intervention of BJP MLA Shitla Prasad Patel. When asked, the Circle Officer Yogendra Krishan Narain said he had got information that independent candidate Dileep Patel had held 18 BDC members hostage in his house.
