New Delhi: Almost 500 men hurling stones and chanting “maro maro (attack)” are seen running down the street during the mob violence in Bulandshahr on Monday that resulted in the death of a policeman and a youth.

The incident took place after allegations of cow slaughter flared up a clash between the villagers and the cops.

A three-minute video that surfaced on Wednesday shows Sumit, 20, pelting stones before getting shot in the chest. The second half of the video also captured inspector Subodh Kumar lying unconscious with the mob shouting, “take his gun.”

In the video, Sumit does not appear to be a bystander as has been reported so far and as his family claims. He is seen in the video as part of the mob throwing stones at the police. The mob enters a field and some of them can be heard shouting "shots have been fired". Then Sumit, bleeding, is seen being helped to safety by two men.

A constable armed with a gun is seen in a field as the mob closes in, with the video-taker repeatedly shouting: "Snatch the guns. Maaro, maaro (attack, attack)".

The final frame in the video is that of the inspector lying motionless on the ground.

Later, according to what his driver has told the police, he was shot by the mob. The driver had bundled him into his SUV and was trying to take him to hospital when the mob caught up with the vehicle, cornered it in the field and shot the officer.

The mob was allegedly led by Yogesh Raj, an activist of the rightwing group Bajrang Dal, who had complained to the police about cow slaughter after carcasses were found scattered in a forest.

The police, trying to placate the protesters, came under attack and fired shots in the air as the situation rapidly spiralled out of control.
