A chargesheet has been filed against BJP leader Sangeet Som for allegedly violating prohibitory orders imposed in Dadri’s Bisada village, where a man was killed over rumours that he stored and consumed beef.
Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate NP Singh said a chargesheet was filed on Wednesday by Uttar Pradesh Police against Sangeet Som, MLA from Sardhana, for violating the prohibitory orders imposed in the village where the incident took place in the first week of October.
The DM said that other accused, who had violated the prohibitory orders and against whom FIRs were lodged, have been also chargesheeted.
The administration was taking measures to nab the rumour mongers aiming to disturb the communal harmony, Singh said.
Normalcy has been restored in the village, and peace meetings were being held at Bisada and nearby sensitive villages to maintain communal harmony, the DM informed.
A team of cyber experts at the police station have been continuously working to detect objectionable communal-sensitive posts over the internet and taking action against those who post rumours and can incite sentiments, the DM said.
Singh said that village pradhans have been directed to maintain registration of cattle. During a cow’s death, the pradhans will note the cause and then dispose the body as per norms and rituals.
Meanwhile, magisterial enquiry in Bisada case is proceeding at a fast pace, with October 30 being the last date for filing statements before the ADM at collectorate.
“Eight persons have so far given statements,” ADM Rajesh Kumar Yadav said.
Former MP Surindra Nagar said a cheque of Rs 3 lakh was given, on Wednesday, to the family members of Rahul Yadav -- who was injured in police firing in Bisada village, Dadri.
Yadav promised job for Rahul and along with financial help for his sisters’ marriage.
