Uttar Pradesh: Posters announce Rs 1 crore reward for Alpesh Thakor's head, probe on
The BJP has been blaming Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor and his outfit Gujarat Kshatriya-Thakor Sena for the outbreak of violence against Hindi-speaking people in Gujarat. The posters said Thakore's act is against labourers and others are cowardice. Such an act is against the country. We have declared Rs one crore reward for beheading him.
We have come to know about these posters having been pasted in the city through social media. We are committed to check such nuisance by unscrupulous elements. This is illegal. We are probing the matter, Additional Superintendent of Police Ajay Pratap Singh said.
Attacks on migrant labourers came in the wake of rape of a 14-month-old toddler in a village in Sabarkantha district. After it came to light that the rape accused hailed from Bihar, the Kshatriya Thakor Sena said migrant workers from other states should not be given jobs in Gujarat.
A 200-strong mob, allegedly led by Thakor Sena members, stormed a factory near Vadnagar town of Mehsana district on October 2 and thrashed two employees.
Over 50,000 people belonging to Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar had reportedly fled Gujarat due to attacks on migrants. Fifty-six cases were filed and 431 arrests made in connection with attacks on Non-Gujaratis.
