A Bajrang Dal Leader is accused chiefly in the violence case. Yogesh raj, the district coordinator of the ultra-right-wing group, is the main accused. It was Yogesh who filed the FIR of alleged Cow slaughter. Seven people are accused of that- Sudaif Chaudhary, Ilyas, Sharafat, Anas, Shajid, Parvez, and Saifuddin. They all are booked under sections of the Uttar Pradesh Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1955, and Section 295 of the IPC act.
Raj, surprisingly, has not been arrested yet. According to a report by news agency PTI, at least four people are booked for violence. All four hail from the right-wing organisation.
