“Three persons have been detained so far in this case. The investigation is on,” he said.

Earlier, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had lashed out at the Samajawadi Party (SP)-led Government in Uttar Pradesh over the incident, saying that such things were bound to happen when a ‘party of goons’ is in power in the state.

An eight-year-old boy, Shami died on Sunday, allegedly in a celebratory firing after local elections results were announced here.
