Earlier Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav said that crime has peaked in the state and the morale of the “criminals” has grown by leaps and bounds.
Akhilesh Yadav wrote on his official Twitter handle “Crime has reached its peak in UP and the morale of the criminals is high. When someone can be killed openly despite being surrounded by a security cordon, one can imagine the state of the general public. Due to this (alleged encounter killings), an ambience of fear is being created among the public. It seems that some people are deliberately creating such an ambience.”
Meanwhile, Chief Minister of Utter Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath immediately called a high-level meeting and ordered a high-level inquiry into the whole matter. Chief Minister also gave instructions for the formation of a three-member Judicial Commission (Judicial Inquiry Commission) in the matter. (CNI)
