‘Police unable to protect their own,’ says son of constable killed in Ghazipur stone pelting incident

NEW DELHI: The son of constable Suresh Vats, who died in Ghazipur stone pelting incident on Saturday, has hit out at the police for failing to protect their own people.

“Police has been unable to protect their own. What can we expect from them? What will we do with the compensation now?,” the constable’s son told ANI. “Earlier, similar incidents took place in Bulandshahr and Pratapgarh,” he added.

Meanwhile, police have arrested some people in connection with the incident and named 32 people in the FIR.

“32 people have been named in the FIR. 60 unnamed people have also been mentioned in the FIR. A few people have been arrested,” said MP Pathak, CO City, Ghazipur.

Constable Suresh Vats (48) from Karimuddinpur police station was hit on the head by a stone when he went to end a traffic jam caused by the protests. He was immediately taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Nishad Party president Sanjay Nishad denied any involvement of his party workers in the matter, adding that BJP is plotting against his party.

Sanjay Nishad told ANI: “We need proper investigation in the case. It is BJP who is plotting against us. Not our party workers but BJP workers threw stones at people. We’re taking our demand of reservation ahead in a democratic manner. If my party workers are found guilty, we will take strict action against them. It is easy to blame the weak as Yogi ji and Modi ji are in power.”
