A police sub-inspector (SI) and three others were arrested for allegedly damaging a religious structure at Saduapura village in Sahso police station area of Etawah district on Friday. Police said the S-I, Vijay Pratap, was deployed in the village, which has a significant Dalit population, to ensure that local residents follow the lockdown directive.
Pratap allegedly told people to gather at a spot in the village and instigated them to damage a religious structure by urging them “not to believe in any God and goddess,” police sources said. A police team later got the structure repaired.
