The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has sent a notice to the UP government and the DGP in connection with the murder of a mob victim after the teacher was shot dead in Kushinagar. The NHRC has asked how in the presence of the police force did the mob commit such a cruel act by taking the law in their hands.
The commission said that ‘a fully prepared police team was present when the victim was brutally attacked with sticks and stones.’ The Commission has issued this notice taking automatic cognizance of the matter. It has to be answered within four weeks.
The incident took place on Monday in Rampur Bangra village of Taryasujan police station in Kushinagar by a boy named Aryaman from Nandanagar in Gorakhpur. Aryaman shoots the teacher with his father’s gun. He then tried to run away but climbed onto the roof seeing the crowd. Aryaman also fired from the roof to create panic among the villagers. It is alleged that the police arrived late despite receiving information about the incident. Aryaman was caught by the police but could not save him from the angry mob. The mob dragged him from custody and beat Aryaman to death with sticks.
