LUCKNOW: After the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government came to power in Uttar Pradesh with a promise to improve law and order, encounters have been taken up as part of a new strategy to control crime, the police have said. Data released by the government today said more than 430 encounters have been carried out over the last six months, which roughly means one encounter happened every 12 hours.

Last week, a senior officer of the police, Anand Kumar, said encounters will continue in the days to come. The government has also allowed district police chiefs to announce rewards of upto Rs. 1 lakh for a team that carries out an encounter.

“Today, the people are secure and safe. The police used to be scared that if we act against criminals, we will be acted against. We have changed that. The police is leading from the front,” Yogi Adityanath said at a press conference this evening as his government completed six months.

According to data released by the UP Police, between March 20 and September 18, there have been 431 encounters, in which 17 criminals were killed; two policemen died and 88 were injured; so far, 1,106 criminals have been caught.

The police say the number of encounters and arrests in such a short period are unprecedented. Data from previous years is unavailable in public domain.

The last encounter took place in Etawah on Monday. Sundar Yadav, 27, was facing cases of murder, loot, dacoity and kidnapping. He was shot after he opened fire at policemen checking vehicles near a river, the police said, and died at a hospital in Etawah.

Two days ago, Jan Mohammed, who faces 24 cases of murder and robbery, was killed by the Muzaffarnagar police. “We don’t want to injure or kill anyone. The effort is to arrest. But if criminals fire at us, we have to fire back,” said Anant Deo, a senior police officer who led the operation.

COMMENTSThe opposition has questioned the number of encounters cited by the government. The Samajwadi Party, which was trounced by the BJP in the assembly elections held in March, has called it a “dangerous trend” is to use encounters as a “yardstick to maintain law and order in UP”.

“Maybe the lines have already been crossed. The officer on the ground is under pressure to add to the statistics and present them before the government and that is very worrying,” said Samajwadi Party spokesperson Juhi Singh.


Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh police are a rejuvenated lot since the coronation of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who has given them a free hand to target criminals and shoot them down, bypassing the process of law and courts. The cops are relishing this newfound freedom and are boasting on social media about the bullets they are pumping into criminals. Several tweets from Uttar Pradesh police officers elaborate the count of kills and captures over the last few months.

The equation was the other way around during the tenure of Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government, as policemen in the state were attacked 622 times. Even former Uttar Pradesh parliamentary affairs minister Mohammad Azam Khan had admitted in the state Assembly that police stations were attacked and ransacked and men in khaki were being targeted in different districts like Etawah, Auraiya and Lucknow.

The Uttar Police police, so far, has killed 23 and arrested 1,315 “criminals” in 528 encounters since 20 March. With 245 encounters, Meerut has witnessed the maximum action, according to the information provided by the DGP office. The Western Uttar Pradesh division of Meerut is considered a safe zone among criminals. As many as 122 policemen have also been injured during these encounters.

Another side of these rampant encounters came forth after Uttar Pradesh police killed alleged gangster Sumit Gurjar in Greater Noida on 3 October. The very next day, his family staged a protest in Noida against Uttar Pradesh police, claiming he was not an absconding criminal as police were making him out to be. They said he “was killed in a fake encounter after being picked up from near his home on 30 September.”

The police had earlier claimed that Gurjar and seven others were involved in a cash van robbery committed on 20 September. A reward of Rs 50,000 was announced on his arrest about a week before he was killed in “retaliatory fire”. The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), taking suo moto cognisance of the matter, sought an explanation from the chief secretary and the DGP, Uttar Pradesh, on 5 October. The Commission made it clear that it would be a violation of human rights if the encounter is proved to be fake.

The NHRC, in a press release, stated: “Elimination of a criminal in such an unlawful manner can never send a good message to a civilised society. As has been emphasised time and again, the police do not have a right to take away the life of a human being. It is not the lawful way to deal with criminals.”

Yogi’€™s Uttar Pradesh: A Fragile State in Making
India being the largest democracy in the world and known for the deliberate participation of people in the political process, the primary responsibility of its elected political machinery is to maintain public order and respect human rights. But recently, we are seeing the most populous and a politically significant state in India, Uttar Pradesh, becoming the harbinger of the total suppression human rights.

Diluting democratic principles with BJP’s chauvinistic agendas, the Yogi Government has already eroded the representative nature of the state. Anything that stands against the agenda of the government is dealt with fiercely. Many innocents have lost their lives in the name of bringing heinous criminals before the law. The state machinery has completely failed in maintaining law and order and protecting innocent lives. Law enforcement agencies, primarily the state police, and moral policing in the name of voluntary force, are given a free hand in UP.

Collaborating with gau rakshaks, the state police have purged thousands of innocents. The state police force, bound to act through and within the law, collaborate with the moral police and intensify these state-sponsored brutal attacks on commoners. Vigilante groups, no matter how much political patronage they enjoy, are not legal. Now, between the government-sanctioned mob-police and the police-mob, the rule of law is fading away in a sea of excesses, both rhetorical and violent. Day by day, terrifying data on fake encounters and killings are coming out and the government seems to have completely failed in checking the alarming increase in the rate of crimes.

As per the latest data, loot cases stood at 1,352 till August this year as compared to 992 in 2015 and 1,186 in 2016. Murder cases stood at 1,364 till August as compared to 1,395 in 2015 and 1,513 in 2016. Rape incidents also rose from 849 in 2015 to 1,030 in 2016 and 1,266 till July this year. Instances of riots have gone up from 1,608 in 2015 to 2,539 till August this year. Data from last few years substantiate that crime rate has gone up in Uttar Pradesh after Yogi Adityanath became the Chief Minister. In the first two months of his government, 803 incidents of rape and 729 of murder were reported. Between March 15 and May 9, 729 murders, 803 rapes, 799 loots, 2,682 kidnappings and 60 dacoities took place.

According to data released by the Director General of Police headquarters, the UP police have conducted 420 encounters with alleged criminals and 15 were killed in less than six months of Yogi’s rule. In the encounters between March 20 and September 14, 2017, 88 police personnel have suffered injuries.

Data illustrates the BJP government’s apathy and failure to check crime rates in the state ever since coming to power. A glance at any local newspaper in UP cannot escape news articles about petrol pump owners getting looted, traders getting murdered, political leaders killed etc. Adding to all this agony, Uttar Pradesh witnessed the tragic and shocking death of more than 1500 children due to lack of oxygen supply in various hospitals in last six months. In the midst of alarming crime rates, farm distress and poorly performing social development indicators, it is unfortunate to see Yogi Adityanath busy preparing for seasonal festivals and blowing bugles for Mr. Modi.

We urge the UP state government to let the rule of law prevail and let principles of social justice take precedence over anything else.
