Mother of Jeetendra Malik alias Jeetu Fouji — the Indian Army jawan allegedly involved in the murder of a police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh during the Bulandshahr violence, accused the Uttar Pardesh Police of misbehaving with the family when the cops were looking for Malik. She also claimed that the police damaged their property.
Jeetendra Malik’s mother identified as Ratan Kaur said that the police badly beat up Jitu's wife and even picked her up and kept her in an unknown place. During the raid, the police also broke goods including their TV and fridge.
She claimed that the action of the Uttar Pradesh police was a violation of human rights.
Malik was arrested on Saturday by an Uttar Pradesh Police team from North Kashmir.
Earlier, the UP Police issued an arrest warrant against Malik, who was absconding since Singh’s killing.
The violence took place in Mahao village in Syana area of Bulandshahr, some 100 km from Delhi, when a cow carcass was allegedly found in a thicket. The news travelled fast in the area and the situation worsened. A large crowd staged a blockade of the Bulandshahr-Dhar highway, carrying the cow carcass. The police tried to intervene, which led to hostilities.
