24 People Including Two Policemen Were Killed At Mathura In Uttar Pradesh | Latest Political News
At least 24 people, including two policemen, were killed as police tried to evict around 3,000 encroachers from a park in Mathura in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday night. Tension prevailed in the area on Friday with police seizing a large cache of ammunition from the site and arresting 320 people. The clashes broke out when the police was trying to evict illegal occupants of a land in Jawahar Bagh by activists, who were protesting under the auspices of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi aka Swadheen Bharat Subhash Sena, on the directions of the Allahabad high court.
Uttar Pradesh Principal Secretary Debashish Panda said, “About 3,000 self-styled followers of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose had been occupying a public park for about two years and, despite repeated warnings by the local administration, they refused to budge from there. Eventually, their eviction was ordered by the Allahabad high court and when the police moved in to execute the court order, some of them opened fire.”
Panda said cops had to resort to firing after two local police officials — the superintendent of police and the station house officer — were shot. Chief Medical Officer of the district Vivek Mishra said five protesters and two policemen were killed in the clashes. SP (City) Mukul Dwivedi and SHO, Farah police station, Santosh Yadav were killed in firing by the encroachers, Sharma and Mishra said. Mishra said at least four dozen people, including, two dozen police personnel, were injured in the skirmishes.
