‘In addition to the Rs. 50 lakh compensation offered by UP government, we too have donated Rs. 70 lakh on our own will,’ senior police officer, Prashant Kumar told news agency ANI.
Earlier, the Inspector was killed by a mob when Inspector Singh along with his team had gone to a village where violence erupted after cow carcasses were found in a forest. The protest was sparked after activists of right-wing group Bajrang Dal came to the area and blocked a road.
The Inspector was severely injured after he was hit on his head with a stone. His driver tried to take him to the hospital in a car, but the mob didn’t allow him to do so and shot the police officer. Inspector Singh died of a bullet wound below his left eyebrow, the autopsy report had confirmed.
