UP minister calls Kasganj violence a small incidence

One person, identified as Chandan Gupta, died and two others were injured in the Kasganj violence that broke out on Saturday after a youth died during a clash on Friday. Over 150 arrests have been made in connection with the Kasganj violence, the officials said.

He added that whatever had happened in Kasganj was "not a communal riot" but a "clash between two groups". The district administration said it had taken a slew of measures to contain lingering tension, with the state government removing the Superintendent of Police.

Politics over the violence peaked on Wednesday when a Congress delegation, attempting to visit the violence-hit area, was stopped by district authorities in Mirhachi area in Etah on the border of Kasganj district.

Meanwhile, a video showing a group of men armed with guns, clubs and sticks roaming on roads in Kasganj town has also gone viral on the social media.

Further investigation revealed that the bullets fired on 22-year-old Chandan Gupta were shot from Saleem's house.

Several questions have been asked in the report including, what was the reason behind the spread of violence?

Doubt it? Remember what, exactly, McCabe did that drew Trump's ire initially: His wife ran for office in Virginia. Strzok and Page used words like "idiot" and "loathsome human" to describe Trump during the campaign.

Demanding a government job for a member of Gupta's family, the VHP also requested Adityanath to give a compensation of Rs.50 lakh and a house to the kin of the deceased.

While T Raja was allowed to enter Kasganj despite a ban, a Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) delegation led by state party president Raj Babbar was denied permission on Wednesday to enter the district.

Unidentified miscreants had pelted the motorcycle rally with stones.

Officials said the state government was preparing a report sought by the Centre on the violence and steps taken to control it.

The first Tiranga Yatra led by VHP vice-president of Braj region, Sunil Parashar, began its journey in Agra on Wednesday but was terminated nearly as soon as it began from Shaheed Smarak.

The UP Police, which deployed drone cameras for surveillance, said the situation was improving. Singh was sent to Police Training School, Meerut, in the same rank, they said.
