Uttar Pradesh Police on Saturday revealed that some members of the Bharat Hindu Mahasabha slaughtered cows themselves to incite communal violence in Agra during the Ram Navami procession.
Communal violence erupted in various cities, including Bihar and Bengal, following the occasion of Ram Navami. Meanwhile, a shocking incident of cow slaughter in UP’s Agra has been uncovered.
According to a report by Amar Ujala, officials of the Hindu Mahasabha allegedly slaughtered cows themselves to provoke communal violence. The police, however, said that the Hindu Mahasabha lacks the expertise or knowledge to be involved in slaughtering a cow.
According to the report, the slaughter was carried out at the new Gupha in the Gautam Nagar of Agra’s Etemad-ud-Daula police station area
The police have accused officials of the Akhil Bharat Handu Mahasabha, with the National Spokesperson Sanjay Jat being named as the main suspect, of conspiring to carry out the cow slaughter. Some workers of the organization were also allegedly involved in the plot. However, Jat denies the accusations and claims that he and other officials have been falsely implicated, and that they had prior knowledge of the incident only through hearsay. He stated that the Mahasabha will investigate the matter and seek a meeting with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
