Full detail about Kashganj riot and Chandan Gupta- from beginning to end- read who is behind it

15th of August and 26th of January are the two days which fall only twice a year. These two days fill every heart of true Indian with utmost patriotism. Almost all of us feel proud and express our love for our beloved mother India. Everyone celebrates the opportunity in his/her own way.

The bloody incident took place on the republic day in kashganj district of Uttar Pradesh- when a group of youngsters was celebrating the day by carrying out a Tiranga Rally. The group belonged to no political party but they were members of a foundation called “Sankalp”. It was the foundation which was celebrating the republic day.

The foundation has no political connection with any party- yet some Indian news channels are trying to project these youngsters as political workers. Some of TV journalists even claimed they were part of ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad). The Sankalp foundation has  great reputation- it is responsible for social works and helping people. Not just the foundation- Chandan Gupta ,who was killed, himself donated his blood to many Muslims who were in need.

The organization had taken out a Tiranga Rally- its members were singing patriotic songs along the road  like Vandey Matram, Bharat Mata Ki Jai etc. The only aim of this rally was to infuse the passerby with patriotism. The tension was sparked when people from a certain community blocked their way and did not let them move forward. Even after many attempts people did not allow the foundation members to pass along the road which was a public one.

After a while the community people asked the foundation members to chant Pakistan Jindabad, which escalated the situation even further. They allegedly chanted slogans out loud in favour of Pakistan in their (foundation) presence.

It escalated to such a great peak that someone fired his gun and shot Chandan Gupta down- who started pumping out blood and died instantly. Even after his death, a mob of people attacked some shops and a religious place. But now the situation is under control of police. 112 arrests have been made in this case and drone cameras have been deployed for aerial surveillance.

The DM of the city said- analyzing the angle, the bullet that hit Chandan Gupta was fired from a house roof which belonged to a Muslim family. However, investigation is underway to ascertain who really fired the bullet.

TheYouth team requests its memebers not to believe in rumors floating on the internet. Apart from Chandan Gupta, no one has died. Some miscreants are claiming deaths of other persons using fake photos to spread rumors.
