Uttar Pradesh Police is studying a video that has surfaced showing Hindu youths carrying guns, while moving towards Muslim dominated area in Kasganj on the R-Day, said a media report.
Some of them then fire several rounds, mentioned the report published in the Times of India about the video.
The video, shot from the roof of the local tehsil office, also shows many in the group holding clubs and sticks, said the report.
In violence that followed, one man was shot dead while two were seriously injured as rampaging mobs had then set several vehicles, shops and houses on fire and even some places of worship, too, were targeted, said the report.
Quoting sources, the report said that “there were over 50 youths and one of them had the Indian flag. At least two had revolvers and others were carrying clubs, sticks, while the rest were hurling stones towards the Muslim-populated area. Several shots were fired in air by youths who were in the ‘tiranga yatra’. A special investigation team is now looking into the 14-second clip to identify the men seen in it.”
Also, in an FIR filed by SHO Ripudaman Singh of City Kotwali, according to the report, stated: “The youths (from the tiranga yatra) were challenging men from the other community after the latter stopped them from passing through their colony. When police intervened to pacify them, they didn’t listen. Meanwhile, bullet shots were heard from the alleyway, after which the (yatra) group started pelting stones on people from the other community and both groups exchanged fire and even targeted policemen”.
