A BSP activist was killed in a clash in UP’s Hardoi district as violence by Samajwadi Party (SP) workers continued across the state on Saturday, despite appeals and warnings by the party leadership including chief minister-designate Akhilesh Yadav.

Clashes were reported in the state’s Pratapgarh district and in Moradabad after a newly-elected party legislator's car knocked down and severely injured a police constable.

While police officials refused to be drawn into the political aspects, Assistant Director General of Police (Law & Order) Subesh Singh confirmed the incidents and said follow-up action was being taken.

“A clash between two political parties has been reported and a person has died,” he said.

After the clash in Sandila area of Hardoi, adjoining Lucknow, eight people, said to be close to a SP gram pradhan had been detained. The incident has led to tension in the area.

In Pratapgarh, police had to intervene to restore peace.
