UP DGP denies communal situation in state, urges media to rebut such news

Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) OP Singh appealed to people to not pay attention to communal news and try to understand the facts behind the situation. He said, "In the recent times, attempts have been made to initiate a communal situation. A person claimed in Aligarh that his cap was removed and he was tortured in a train, we investigated, he used to study at a Madrasa in Bareilly and we found that nothing like that happened." He further added, "Similar incidents took place in Kanpur, and recently in Unnao where person registered FIR that he was asked to chant "Jai Sri Ram" while facts were found to be different."
