New Delhi: A new angle has emerged in the murder of inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, who was shot dead in a mob frenzy over cow slaughter in Bulandshahr on Monday, with an army jawan emerging as a key suspect.

Meerut Zone IG Ram Kumar told News18 that based on the statements of villagers, it has been found that the soldier, Jeetu Fauji, had allegedly fired the shot that killed the inspector.

Kumar said that Jeetu, a resident of Mahaw village, is posted in Jammu and Kashmir and a police team has been sent to nab him. “After questioning him, it will be clear whether the bullet was his or not. At present, the team has gone to Jammu for taking him on the basis of doubt," the IG said.

While Jeetu’s mother Ratan Kaur said she could not identify her son from videos of the mob attack, his relatives confirmed that he was present when the mob killing took place. They said he left for J&K soon after the incident.

Four people have been arrested so far for the murder of the police inspector, but one of the main accused – Bajrang Dal leader Yogesh Raj - is still at large.

The IG (Crime) also revealed that according to the information given, the murder of inspector Subodh Kumar and another youth, Sumit, was with the .32 bore bullet. Now whether the same revolver was used will be known only after the report comes out.

A violent clash between the police and villagers of Mahaw on Monday after a mob turned violent in an alleged case of illegal slaughtering of cattle, resulted in the death of station house officer (SHO) Subodh Kumar Singh, 47, and a youngster.



The autopsy report of the SHO revealed that he was shot in the head. The FIR prepared by Bulandshahr police named 28 and included 60 unidentified individuals in the list. Eight of the accused belong to right-wing outfits like the Bajrang Dal, VHP and the BJP youth wing.
