Dadri :Tension today spread to nearby areas of Bishada after meat pieces were found in an adjoining village even as the District Magistrate decided to further restrict entry of visitors to the troubled spot and examine statements made by controversial BJP MLA Sangeet Som during his visit to the area.
Police force has been deployed in Chithera village, which is about five kms from Bishada, as tension prevailed over recovery of meat pieces last evening.
Dadri DSP Anurag Singh said some persons had kept the meat pieces in the village to create communal disturbance.
Police teams are investigating the matter and security has been stepped up in the village.
As tension prevailed in Bishada, which witnessed the lynching of a man over rumours of alleged beef consumption, his elder brother Jameel Ahmad appealed that no innocent person should be punished for his brother’s death.
Ahmad said on the fateful day he was at Loni, Ghaziabad when he got a call from his brother’s daugther that a mob had dragged her father out and was assaulting him.
“I want justice but innocent persons should not be implicated in the case. Real culprits should be punished,” said Ahmad.
Sartaj, another brother of the deceased, appealed that family members should be left alone as they do not want to meet any visitor.
With many leaders making a beeline to the village, District Magistrate NP Singh has restricted entry of politicians or others who could create ruckus.
Asked about the visit of Som who addressed a public meeting yesterday and asked Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to stop shedding “crocodile tears”, the District Magistrate said Som’s convey was stopped one km from the village and only the BJP leader and his security persons were allowed.
