Amethi: Retired Army Captain Beaten To Death By Mob

"The law-and-order situation in Uttar Pradesh is not in the control of the state government,” said Priyanka Gandhi.

Uttar Pradesh, a state where crime has remained a constant problem, witnessed another incident of mob violence. On July 27, a 64-year-old retired Army captain was beaten to death by unidentified assailants in the Amethi district.

On Saturday night in the Godiyan ka Purva village under Kamrauli Police Station limits, retired Army personnel, Amanullah, and his wife were in their house when a group of people attacked them with sticks. They also tried to strangle him. As per Amanullah’s son, the attackers hit Amanullah across the head. Per the police, he died on the spot.

Amanullah’s wife told the police some people were trying to steal from a shop adjoining their house in Godiyan ka Purva village, ASP Dayaram said. When her husband objected and warned them he would inform the police, they barged into their house and beat him up.

The body has been sent for post-mortem, and further investigation is underway, as per the police.

Calling out the state of law and order in Uttar Pradesh and especially in Amethi, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi asked if the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s government in the state would continue to cover up incidents of crime instead of working on solutions.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “The law-and-order situation in Uttar Pradesh is not in the control of the state government. While crimes are on the rise, the state government is busy covering them up.”

“This is an incident in my home Amethi. Will the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh find a solution to this problem or will it continue to sleep and cover-up,” she added.

Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury, too, weighing on this incident, tweeted, “Lynching of minorities in BJP ruled states continues with impunity. That the victim was a retired army officer only bears testimony to the level of hatred being fuelled by this political ideology where those responsible for punishing lynchers protect them.”
