PoliticsDaylight murder of Roshni Ahiwar by Raj Ahiwar and another sparks outrage in Uttar Pradesh

The daylight murder of a young woman in Uttar Pradesh has caused outrage, with locals and social media users questioning the law and order situation in the state.

Roshni Ahirwar, a 21-year-old BA student, was shot and killed in broad daylight by two men on a motorcycle as she was returning home from college.  The assailants tossed the gun on the spot, a crowded road crossing barely 200 metres from the local police station, and fled.
The two men on a motorcycle shot and killed a woman who was returning after taking a college exam in the Jalaun district on Monday morning.
The police have arrested one person and are interrogating him. The victim, Roshni Ahirwar, a 21-year-old BA student, was returning home from the Ram Lakhan Patel Mahavidyalaya in Ait after the exam at around 11 am when two men on a Bajaj Pulsar motorcycle approached her with a country-made pistol in hand.
One of them shot her in the head and Roshni died on the spot. Locals rushed to catch the men, but they flung the weapon and sped away. The woman’s parents lodged a complaint against Raj Ahirwar, based on which the police registered a case and arrested him.
He is being interrogated, police said. A video of the woman lying face down on the ground in a pool of blood as locals and the police watch has gone viral on social media, drawing harsh criticism towards the Yogi Adityanath-led state government.
The woman is in college uniform, and a pistol can be seen on the ground next to her. Several social media users have questioned the law and order situation in the state, as this comes just two days after dreaded gangster-turned-political Atiq Ahmed was shot dead by three men in front of TV cameras in Prayagraj, to the embarrassment of the police and administration.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal also shared the disturbing video clip on Twitter, and targeted the UP government. “Will the wolves of Godi media and the BJP also celebrate this death?” the party wrote in the caption, in an apparent swipe at celebratory coverage of Atiq’s murder. Police reached the spot soon and started investigating. Locals gathered at the spot, and the market was closed after the incident.
Post a comment Jalaun Superintendent of Police Dr Iraj Raja said the victim was a BA second-year student and was returning home after college. “We are trying to catch the accused, and they will be arrested soon. We have found a lot of evidence and are investigating,” he had earlier said

One person has been arrested and is being interrogated by the police. The incident has drawn criticism towards the Yogi Adityanath-led state government, with several social media users questioning the law and order situation in the state. The Rashtriya Janata Dal also targeted the government in a tweet sharing a video of the incident, asking if the media and BJP would also celebrate this death.

One person has been arrested and is being interrogated.  The incident occurred just two days after the high-profile murder of gangster-turned-political figure Atiq Ahmed.

Poor Law and Order in Uttar Pradesh

The state of Uttar Pradesh in India has been facing severe criticism for its poor law and order situation. Despite being the most populous state in the country, Uttar Pradesh has been grappling with rising crime rates, particularly crimes against women. The recent daylight murder of a young woman returning home from college in the Jalaun district has once again brought the issue to the forefront.

There have been numerous cases of mob violence, communal riots, and police brutality in the state, leading to widespread anger and protests. The police force in Uttar Pradesh has been accused of being ineffective, corrupt, and biased toward those in power. The lack of accountability and transparency in the system has only added to the problem.

The state government has come under fire for its failure to address the situation and provide adequate protection to its citizens. There have been calls for urgent reforms in the police department, stricter laws to curb crimes against women, and more investment in the justice system.

The poor law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh not only affects the safety and security of its citizens but also has a negative impact on the state’s economic and social development. Urgent measures need to be taken to address the issue and restore the faith of the people in the system.
