    ADG Police from Meerut has left for the Bulandshahr and has ordered deployment of force.

    Expressing grief over the incident, chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who was in Rajasthan for election campaign, said action will be taken against the guilty after the probe reports were received. He also said financial assistance would be given to the affected persons.

    Samajwadi Party (SP) national president Akhilesh Yadav called the Bulandshahr incident unfortunate. "Ever since this government came to power policing has collapsed. The murder of the police inspector proves that UP is under 'jungle raj'."
