UP which was once upon a time known as the crime capital of India has, reportedly, showed improvements after the BJP government took charge of the state. However, the opposition parties have put many allegations on this way of dealing with criminals. Sumit Gujar, a gym owner from Noida who was shot in an encounter has raised voices. “The recent encounter in Noida was fake and we seek strict action against the culprits. CM Yogi had warned the criminals but instead, crime has risen in the state. This is just government propaganda to hide their failure to crime control. This is a smokescreen created by the BJP but on the contrary, the crime graph is rising. Law and order situation has gone out of the hand in the state” said Rajendra Chaudhary, Spokesperson of Samajwadi Party. National Human Rights Commission had also sent a letter to the UP Government seeking an answer for the same. Government should keep a check on encounters as it could lead to 1991 Pilibhit fake encounter case in which 47 officers were found guilty of killing 12 people who were returning from pilgrimage.
