Bishada in Uttar Pradesh is on the boil once again as villagers today refused to cremate the body of 22-year-old Ravi, accused in the Dadri lynching case. Ravi alias Robin died at Lok Nayak Jaiprakash Hospital in Delhi yesterday of kidney and respiratory failure. Villagers draped his coffin in a tricolour, saying he had been martyred protecting “Hindu values”. Tensions rose as the body reached the village, as villagers outrightly rejected Ravi’s death report claiming he was murdered. Heavy police force was also deployed in the area.

Seeing the body draped in a tricolour, policemen and administration officials, however, preferred to remain mum as objections might have sparked violence in the area.

“Villagers demanded Rs 1 crore for deceased’s family, arrest of Akhlaq’s brother Jaan Mohammad in a cow slaughter case and an FIR against the jailer. Villagers told administration that they will not cremate the body till their demands are met,” said Sanjay Rana, BJP leader and father of one of the accused.

Gautam Buddh Nagar District Magistrate N P Singh said the state government would give its consent for a CBI probe if the deceased’s family is not satisfied with the ongoing inquiry.

The DM said a judicial inquiry had been initiated, adding that the Chief Judicial Magistrate is conducting it.

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has announced Rs 10 lakh compensation to the deceased Ravi’s wife Pooja.

Uttar Pradesh Police claimed that Ravi was suffering from high fever and his death was suspected to be due to dengue.

Ravi’s brother Vicky, however, claimed he was “assaulted by police in jail due to which he sustained injuries. Unlike, what police is saying, he was not suffering from any fever.

The state government had earlier said that the jailer of the prison where Ravi was held would be transferred once the probe found him guilty.

But in an apparent attempt to pacify villagers, the jailer S K Pandey was transferred to Lucknow headquarters.

The National Human Rights Commission has also issued a notice to the Uttar Pradesh government and demanded reply from district administration.

The postmortem was conducted yesterday in Delhi under the supervision of a Metropolitan Magistrate from a local court.

          you need go to a mental insution to get yourself checked. People like you are stain on the Indian land. Killing in the name of religion shows how low your RSS mentality is. Baghdadi and RSS are just two faces of a coin. You on the other hand are a fool.

                        Every time congress is out of power they destabilize the new government by spreading lies with the help of slaved paid media and creating riots in the name of caste, religion, language, etc. Now they have gone further to demoralize the country. by questioning our army. This is it. Enough of testing our patience and good will. This election, the congress should be wiped out of the UP Parliament.lt;br/gt;Also remember this day, this dialogue and this statement from RAGA for the next 10 years. Every election around the country from now onwards is an effort for all patriots to destroy the political base of congress.lt;br/gt;It is time this party is eradicated from the Indian Political scene. Without it the country will not be able to peacefully progress in the world.lt;br/gt;Once the congress is eradicated we will figure out how to handle the other traitors in the paid media and politics. No more tolerance for mediocre leaders and their paid slaves
