Eight cops sent to lines after old man’s death following police raid in UP’s Pratapgarh | Allahabad News


PRAYAGRAJ: Eight policemen, including a sub inspector, posted at Sangipur police station of Pratapgarh district were sent to reserve police lines on Monday.
Inspector general of police (Prayagraj range) K P Singh told TOI, “A team of eight policemen led by a sub-inspector and officiating station officer of Sangipur police station had conducted a raid in a house at Babutara Majra village of Sangra Sundarpur in Lalganj police station area on late Saturday night in search of an accused. A 65 year old man of the family died an hour after the raid.”
A probe has been ordered into the incident and the policemen sent to reserve police lines so that the inquiry is not affected, he added.
The family members of the deceased Maqbool (65) gave a complaint to senior police officials on Sunday alleging that Maqbool died due to police highhandedness.
Pratapgarh police, however, said the old man himself ran from the house on seeing them and he was not taken in custody.
The family had refused to perform the last rites of the old man demanding action against policemen, but later relented on coming to know that eight policemen posted at Sangipur police station have been sent to police lines.
Heavy police bandobast was made at Babutara Majra village on Monday in view of last rites of the deceased man.
