In another incident of radical hindutva terrorism in Uttar Pradesh, 3 members of Hindu Yuva Vahini, an organization founded by Yogi Adityanath himself, were arrested on charges of gang-rape and thrashing a police officer.
The incident took place in Bareilly city on Monday, night following a dispute between one Deepak and Avinash over playing of loud music in Ganeshnagar locality, Superintendent of Police (City), Rohit Singh Sajwan said on Tuesday.
Avinash called his friends, who were HYV workers, and barged into Deepak’s house and allegedly misbehaved with the women.
Deepak, who later reached with his brother Gaurav, allegedly beat up Avinash and handed him over to the police.
As the news spreaded, HYV regional president Jitendra Sharma and city unit President Pankaj and a number of other HYV members reached the police station to protest the arrest.
BJP city unit chief Umesh Katharia also reached the police station and in presence of police, HYV members allegedly misbehaved with the BJP leader and allegedly beat up sub-inspector Mayank Arora.
The first FIR was lodged by SI Mayank Arora against Avinash, Jitendra and Pankaj for allegedly beating him and the other by a woman against the three and another person Anil Saxena for allegedly gang raping her.
Avinash, Jitendra and Pankaj have been arrested, police said, adding that a probe is on in the matter.
Ever since Yogi Adityanath has taken over as the CM of Uttar Pradesh, the rise of HYV can be easily noticed. They have opened several new offices across Uttar Pradesh in the past few months. This isn’t the first time when Hindu Yuva Vahini disrupted public order.
