Bulandshahr violence: Arrests over India policeman killing
December 04, 2018

In India, the so-called cow vigilantism is on the rise and led to several killings in the past few years.

The mob violence on the alleged slaughter of cows has become a routine in India but attacks on police is a latest phenomenon. 

In a recent such incident a police officer Subodh Kumar Singh was killed in Uttar Pradesh state yesterday as police clashed with right wing Hindu groups who said police failed to halt the killing of cows.

Many states, including Uttar Pradesh, have actively started enforcing bans on cow slaughter after the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) formed India's federal government in 2014.
