Adding a new angle to the Bulandshahr violence, Uttar Pradesh DGP OP Singh said that the incident was not just a law and order issue, but part of a larger conspiracy. DGP said that there were reasons to believe that the timing of the whole incident was a suspect.

“The incident in Bulandshahr is a big conspiracy. This is not only a law and order issue, how did the cattle carcass reach there? Who brought it, why & under what circumstances?,” said Singh

Singh said that the first FIR was registered within 48 hours of the two murders.

According to a news report in CNN News 18, "We are also looking into the angle to check whether the timing was a suspect and whether it coincided with December 6 which also happens to be the anniversary for Babri Masjid demolition," he said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had been silent on the two murders but summoned top officials on Tuesday and ordered a thorough probe and directed authorities to ensure strict action against those involved in cow slaughter which was said to be the trigger for the brutal incident in Bulandshahr on Monday, December 3. Adityanath also held a meeting in Lucknow with the chief secretary, DGP, principal secretary (home) and additional director general of police (intelligence).

A violent clash between the police and villagers of Mahab on Monday following an alleged case of illegal slaughtering of cattle resulted in the death of station house officer (SHO) of Siyana police station Subodh Kumar Singh, 47, and a 21-year-old youth.
