Police allegedly shot a 53-year-old Muslim woman dead when she resisted detention of his son in a cow slaughter case at Islamnagar village in Uttar Pradesh’s Sidhharthnagar district. They raided her house when preparations were on for her daughter’s wedding.


According to sources, 15-20 police officers reached deceased Roshni’s house to arrest his son Abdul Rehman on a complaint that he was involved in slaughtering a cow, the animal which is being considered sacred by a section of Hindus. According to the brother of the accused, Atirqur Rehman, the cops did not give any reason for his detention. When Roshni resisted his son’s detention one of the policemen opened fire killing her on the spot.

After her killing, villagers gathered at the spot to protest. However, the police party ran away. A complaint was lodged against unidentified cops in connection with the incidents.

The complaint said that police personnel first threatened to shoot Roshni when she tried to save her son and later opened fire. The police later took Abdul Rehman into custody.
