BSP leader shot dead near Allahabad University

BSP leader shot dead in Allahabad supportes torch buses

After a BSP leader was shot dead outside an Allahabad University hostel on Tuesday, angry supporters took to the streets and torched a bus, the police said.

The former UP chief minister said the trend has resulted in the killing of BSP leader Rajesh Yadav, who was the party's candidate from Gyanpur in the last state election. The commuters ran for cover. The mob re-grouped and targeted three vehicles near CMP College road and also made an abortive bid to torch another bus.

While returning, he had a tiff with unidentified persons outside the hostel.

The police was forced to resort to lathicharging the protesters after the the situation spiraled out of control and the protesters began pelting stones at the security forces.

It was discovered that the leader sustained injuries on his stomach where he was rushed to a private hospital by his friend.

The police have been going through CCTV footage to verify the facts. A heavy police force was deployed in the village to avert any untoward incident. Rajesh Yadav, along with his friend Mukul Singh, had gone to meet someone outside the Allahabad University's Tara Chand hostel when the incident took place. A case was registered and investigation was on, they added.

She also asked UP BSP chief Ram Achal Rajbhar, leader of the BSP legislative party Lalji Verma, and senior leader Ambika Chaudhary to visit Bhadohi and console Rajesh Yadav's family.

According to police, Monika Yadav's FIR also stated that Dr Singh acted in collusion with the mining mafia to murder Yadav.
