16-yr-old dies as mob attack R-day rally in UP; curfew clamped

| | Kasganj

A 16-year-old boy was killed and at least two persons were injured in clashes that erupted on Friday after a mob attacked a Republic Day motorcycle rally on Mathura-Bareilly highway.

The district administration has imposed curfew in the trouble-hit area. “One person died during arson, firing and stone pelting, while two others sustained injuries today. The deceased has been identified as Chandan (16). Curfew has been imposed in the city,” said District Magistrate RP Singh said.

The police said some unidentified miscreants hurled stones at the motorcycle rally taken out by VHP and ABVP volunteers to celebrate the Republic Day.

Meanwhile, Additional DG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar had earlier said, “It seems the (stone pelting) incident was not pre-planned, but a spontaneous one. The district magistrate, superintendent of police, and Rapid Action Force and PAC personnel have been sent to the spot.”

“The trouble makers are being identified and stringent action will be initiated against them. The district administration has been able to control the situation so far, but additional forces will be called to ensure that the situation does not worsen,” he said.

Additional forces from adjoining districts have been sought, said IG Aligarh (range) Sanjeev Gupta.
