Police in UP are studying a VIDEO that has now surfaced which shows Hindu youths marching towards a Muslim-dominated area in Kasganj on the morning of January 26 carrying guns.
Some of them then fire several rounds. The video, shot from the roof of the local tehsil office, also shows many in the group holding clubs and sticks.
In violence that followed, one man was shot dead and two seriously injured. Rampaging mobs had then set several vehicles, shops and houses on fire. Some places of worship, too, were targeted.
Asked about the video, accessed exclusively by TOI, a senior officer involved in the investigation confirmed that police were probing the new angle.
In the video, gunshots can be heard clearly. SPEAKING ON THE CONDITION OF ANONYMITY A SENIOR IPS OFFICER SAID, "This was the very point where CHANDAN GUPTA, 21, WAS SHOT DEAD."
A police source told TOI on Tuesday that "there were over 50 youths and one of them had the Indian flag. At least two had revolvers and others were carrying clubs, sticks, while the rest were hurling stones towards the Muslim-populated area. Several shots were fired in air by youths who were in the 'tiranga yatra'. A special investigation team is now looking into the 14-second clip to identify the men seen in it."
THE FIR CONFIRMS THE VERSION I GAVE ON 26TH JAN...
Also, in an FIR filed by SHO Ripudaman Singh of City Kotwali, it has been stated that "the youths (from the tiranga yatra) were challenging men from the other community after the latter stopped them from passing through their colony. "When police intervened to pacify them, they didn't listen. Meanwhile, bullet shots were heard from the alleyway, after which the (yatra) group started pelting stones on people from the other community and both groups exchanged fire and even targeted policemen," the FIR says.
This comes after another video shot in Hulka Mohalla showed youths in the tiranga yatra waving saffron and Indian flags and shouting slogans that many in the Muslim locality felt were "incendiary".
