A map of undivided India is painted on the wall outside the home of Yogesh Raj, the prime accused in the murder of police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh in Bulandshahr and variously described as a nice human being, a patriot and a messiah for Hindus.

The map, in which Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Myanmar are shown as parts of India, underlines the year when India was divided.

Yogesh, 24, joined the Bajrang Dal as a member in 2016 and rose to become its district convener eight months ago.

In the two FIRs registered in the case, Yogesh is the complainant who alleged cow slaughter while he is the prime accused for the murder of the inspector. In his FIR Yogesh has named seven persons, including two minors.

He has been on the run since Monday night.

In the FIR the police have alleged that Yogesh had led around 500 people and incited them to attack policemen. “Despite several request by the deceased inspector he continued inciting the crowd against the police,” the FIR in Hindi said.

Yogesh’s aunt Bhoori Devi said he was an active Bajrang Dal member and recently became the district convener. “But he was not involved in inciting the violence that led to the death of the police officer. He is a very peace-loving person, achchha insaan hai (he is a nice human being),” she claimed.

Bhoori alleged that the police raided her house late on Monday night and assaulted her husband Ram and son Sonu before dragging them to the police station. “Policemen came to our house at midnight and also beat me up,” she said.

Her daughter Suman, 16, said “Yogesh bhai” and his party had been “helping Hindus” in the village and adjoining areas. https://www.telegraphindia.com/india/truant-law-student-prime-accused-in-bulandshahr-violence-dreams-of-an-india-that-includes-pakistan-bangladesh-afghanistan-tibet-and-myanmar/cid/1677706?ref=india_india-page
