In a horrific incident, a man was shot to death by goons in Mathura late last night, after he tried to defend his sisters from the untoward intention of the men. The incident took place when Chandrashekhar, along with his two sisters, was travelling from Chhata village to Deeg.

The goons overtook them on the way and attempted to loot them and molest the women. When he stood up to the men in order to defend his sisters, they shot him in the cold blood resulting in his death on the spot. A case has been registered in Govardhan Police Station and a team of police rushed to the spot to take stock of the situation. Meanwhile, a manhunt has been launched to track down the accused.

Earlier, backing Uttar Pradesh newly-elected Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had said that under CM Yogi Adityanaths’s rule any crime will not be tolerated and women’s safety is the priority. “Yogi Adityanath’s agenda is to ensure security and safety to women in Uttar Pradesh and incidents like eve-teasing, molestation, rape etc will not take place,” said BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain.

Following Adityanath’s orders for the safety of girls in the state, the then Director General of Police (DGP) Javeed Ahmed has launched ‘anti-Romeo’ squads so as to check on eve-teasing incidents in public areas.Adityanath had directed the state police to adopt a zero tolerance towards crime and take immediate steps towards improving law and order in the state.
