Skeletons of six cows were found in an Aligarh village on Wednesday.
"The carcass was found in Chandaus (Aligarh) and bullets were found in Arniya (Bulandshahr). This is a 2-3 day old incident. We are investigating the matter," Khurja's Circle Officer Gopal Singh told news agency ANI.
The incident comes a month after an incident of mob violence in Bulandshahr in which inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was shot dead. The officer and and his team had gone to a village to defuse tension after cow carcasses were found in a forest. The protests escalated after activists of right-wing group Bajrang Dal came to the area and blocked a road with a truck carrying the dead cows.
A Bajrang Dal activist Yogesh Raj who has been dubbed as the main accused in the killing of the officer was caught last night.
