Lucknow: Hours after a retired Army officer Amanullah was beaten to death inside his house in Amethi, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra hit out at the Uttar Pradesh government for the failing law and order in the state.
Taking to Twitter, Vadra said the Yogi Adityanath-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government was busy hiding incidents, even as crime was being committed unabated.
The incident that the Congress leader referred to was reported from Godiyan Ka Purwa village under Kamrauli police station where a 64-year-old retired Army officer was beaten to death inside his home on Saturday night with sticks and rods.
According to police reports, Amanullah was sleeping with his wife and son when a group of people barged into their house and launched an assault on the retired Army officer.
The unidentified assailants attacked Amanullah on his head that led to his death. The victim’s body was sent for post-morterm and a probe is underway.
Amethi, a Congress bastion for long and held by former party chief Rahul Gandhi for three consecutive terms, was won by the BJP’s Smriti Irani in the recently held Lok Sabha elections.
