Involvement of name in Haryana violence conspiracy by cow smugglers: Manesar
Regarding the Haryana violence that has resulted in the loss of six lives so far, he expressed sadness over the situation. According to him, the violence occurred when people from a specific community attacked the procession of Bajrang Dal and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP). He also mentioned that this religious procession has been taking place for the past three years in the Mewat region of Haryana.
He stated that his involvement in the Haryana violence is a conspiracy orchestrated by cow smugglers who sought to tarnish his name.
Manesar is now at the center of the communal violence that unfolded during a procession led by right-wing groups Bajrang Dal and VHP in Haryana's Nuh, which later spread to Sohna and Gurugram.
The clashes are believed to have been instigated by three videos posted on social media – two by Manesar and another by Bittu Bajrangi, both cow vigilantes – between Sunday and Monday.
In one of the videos, Manesar can be heard declaring his participation in the procession on Monday (July 31) and encouraging people to visit temples in the Mewat region in large numbers.
