NEW DELHI: Family of Inspector Subodh Singh, who died after being attacked by mob protesting over alleged cow slaughter in Bulandshahr, met Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath at his residence on Thursday.

Following family’s meeting with the chief minister, UP DGP OP Singh said that a high level probe has been ordered.

“Family of martyred Inspector Subodh Singh ji met chief minister today and he assured the family that they will get justice. A high level probe has also been ordered,” said the DGP at a press conference organised following the meeting.

The DGP further announced that the UP government will pay for the education of the two children of the slain cop, one of whom is studying law and the other is preparing for civil services.

A road will also be named after Subodh Singh in his village, said the UP police chief.

Shrey Pratap Singh, son of martyred Police inspector Subodh Singh said that the chief minister has assured that we will get justice.

The UP police chief had suggested on Wednesday that there was “conspiracy” behind the violence.

“How did the carcasses reach the site from where they were recovered and who was behind this is also a major focus of the probe,” the DGP had said.

With lakhs of people collected for a ‘Tabligi Ijtema’, a congregation of Muslims, 40 km from Mahaw village where the cattle carcasses were found, the conflict in Bulandshahr village could have got worse. Senior police officers feel that the death of Inspector Singh resulted in a panic amongst the rioters and led to their dispersal.
