Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh who killed by the Hindutva goons in Bulandshahar yesterday was the investigation officer in the Mohammad Akhlaq lynching case and was instrumental in getting the meat samples to the lab on time. He was transferred to Varanasi in the middle of the investigation.
The post mortem has confirmed that the late Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was shot dead. The bullet entered his left eyebrow and is lodged inside his skull. A video has also gone viral showing the inspector being besieged by a mob, before gun shots could be heard.
It appears to be a sinister design of a cold blooded murder considering the inspector was besieged by the mob and someone shot him from the point blank range right into his head. If he was over powered, there was no need to kill him. The motive appears to be vengeance against his efforts to give justice to Akhlaq.
