UP CM Adityanath orders probe in Gonda boy's death by minister's cavalcade

According to sources, the auto belonged to UP minister Om Prakash Rajbhar.

Rajbhar is a member of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), a BJP ally in Uttar Pradesh.

An FIR has been registered in this connection, said Vishwanath.

The boy was allegedly hit by a vehicle which was part of the convoy of minister Om Prakash Rajbhar.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered a report on the alleged incident where a minister's auto crushed a five-year-old to death. Even after the child was hit, the vehicle did not stop and dragged along the 5-year-old boy, Shiva on the road. I came to know about the accident quite later and hence question of not stopping there immediately does not arise.

The victim's father alleged that the minister's convoy sped away after the incident.

"I didn't go back to the spot as I was already 25 km away".

Meanwhile, the victim's family and the villagers laid the minor's body on the road and blocked the route. They were later convinced by the police to lift the blockade.

The incident comes two days after a farmer of Orai in Uttar Pradesh's Jalaun district alleged that the state jail minister Jai Kumar Singh Jaiki's cavalcade, comprising more than 35 vehicles, ran over his farm, ruining all the seeds he had sowed a week back. The decorated vehicle hit Shiva.

Earlier this month, Rajbar was in the news with a warning that parents who do not send their children to school would be locked up in police stations without food and water. "The police will act in a proper manner", Gonda District Magistrate JB Singh said.
