"Villagers complained after they found a dead cow, and took to the streets to protest". Nearly 30 policemen looking for the men named in the Bulandshahr mob violence FIR reached the homes of the accused in the early hours of Tuesday and allegedly thrashed their wives and sisters and vandalised property, a News 18 report said.

At least two people have been arrested in connection with the killing of a police officer during a mob violence in India's Uttar Pradesh state, officials have said. Be it Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or Christian everyone is equal over here.

"This morning carcasses of the cows were found dumped in a forest area outside the village".

"There were around 400 people from three neighboring villages". As the officers scurried for cover, the men began to hurl stones and even bricks at them, Mr Asrey said in an interview on Monday.

Police said there was firing by miscreants also during the clash. When police tried to intervene, the angry mob resorted to stone pelting and torching of vehicles. Police Inspector Subodh Kumar was brutally murdered in the violence that erupted after alleged cow slaughter. But eyewitnesses, some of whom were watching from the other side of the road, said the violence broke out only after the police fired into the air to try and disperse the crowd.

Modi has condemned the attacks and promised tough action against the perpetrators, but opposition leaders accuse the BJP governments - federal and in various states - of indirectly supporting the cow vigilantes.

Although, Adityanath announced a Rs 10-lakh financial assistance to the family members of Sumit Kumar from the Chief Minister's Relief Fund, Awasthi said. "Two incidents had occurred that day". Some carry life sentences for transgressions.

Its chief minister Yogi Adityanath, a firebrand Hindu priest turned politician, has pushed for slaughterhouses to be closed and cow shelters to be constructed.

Seven Muslims, including two children, have been named in the alleged cow slaughter case.

Modi, who will seek a second term in office in elections by May, a year ago condemned murder in the name of protecting cows after a string of vigilante killings sparked protests.

"Tension has eased in strife-torn Bulandshahr and efforts are on to ensure there is no trouble in future", he said in Lucknow. The incident sparked outcry and protests across the whole country.
