Dadri/Lucknow : As the political slugest over the Dadri lynching escalated, the District Magistrate on Monday said legal experts have been asked to examine video footage of the remarks made by controversial BJP MLA Sangeet Som and appropriate action will be taken even as UP minister Azam Khan accused BJP of “planning and executing” the killing.
“Whatever he(Som) spoke has been videographed. ..I have asked legal experts to examine his statement….the statement he made in the village and the statement he made to the media persons. If any action is needed to be taken as per law, it will be taken,” the District Magistrate N P Singh said.
The district authorities decided to further restrict entry of visitors to the troubled spot as tension spread to nearby areas after meat pieces were found last evening in Chithera village, which is about five km from Bishada. Dadri DSP Anurag Singh said some persons had kept the meat pieces in the village to create communal disturbance.
Singh also directed that a police case be registered against fringe group for violating prohibitory orders imposed since the killing of a 50-year-old man by a mob allegedly over rumours that he had eaten beef, and allegedly making inflammatory speeches. -PTI
