Martyr’s relatives say UP govt snatched AC, sofa after CM’s departure

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Yogi Adityanath had given Rs 4 lakh ex-gratia to the deceased jawan’s family.

The family of deceased Border Security Force constable Prem Sagar in Deoria has said that the Uttar Pradesh government humiliated them when officials took away the AC, new curtains, sofa set and carpet put in their house after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s visit on Friday.

Officials had made VIP arrangements for the CM’s visit by installing an AC, new curtains, sofa set and carpet in the living room. However, they were soon dismantled and taken away once the CM left.

“They installed an AC, sofa set, lay a carpet on the floor and arranged for a generator to ensure smooth power supply. When the CM left, they took away everything,” said Daya Shankar, brother of the slain jawan.

During his visit, Adityanath handed over a cheque for Rs 4 lakh to the family. He also promised jobs to Sagar’s children and said that a martyr’s memorial and a girls’ inter-college will be set up in the memory of the slain trooper.

The administration said these were temporary arrangements for a VIP guest’s visit. “If a guest comes for a visit, we have to make arrangements and we have to take care of the facilities he is accustomed to,” Additional District Magistrate Virendra Kumar Dohrey told The Indian Express.

“However, I do not have information about when the AC and other things were removed from the house,” he said.

Head Constable Prem Sagar was martyred in Poonch on May 1 and his body is said to have been mutilated by the Pakistan Army.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The Supreme Court will hear a slew of pleas requesting a CBI probe into the April 2020 Palghar mob lynching case. On Monday, the top court agreed to hearing the requests after being apprised that the Maharashtra government has consented to the investigation by the federal agency.

A petitioner informed an apex court bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justices PS Narasimha and JB Pardiwala that the Maharashtra government has accorded consent to a CBI investigation into the alleged lynching of three people by a mob in the state’s Palghar district in April 2020.

A lawyer representing the petitioners said the case can be heard and of on any Friday or Monday.

In a turn of events, the Maharashtra government had earlier told the Supreme Court that it was ready to hand over to the CBI the investigation into the Palghar mob lynching case.

The state government had also sought dismissal of petitions— including a plea by seers of Shri Panch Dashban Juna Akhara and relatives of the victims—seeking an investigation into the case by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Other petitions into the case have been filed by Shashank Shekhar Jha and Ghanshyam Upadhyay.

On the night April 16, 2020, three people travelling in a car from Mumbai’s Kandivali, were intercepted and allegedly assaulted by a mob in Gadchinchile village in the presence of the police, leading to their deaths.
