Tackle vigilantes with iron hand, CM Yogi Adityanath tells officials


Taking a serious note of cow vigilantes and moral police taking over the government's initiatives of banning illegal slaughter and starting anti-Romeo squads, UP chief minister Adityanath Yogi on Thursday issued instructions to senior officials to tackle such elements with an iron hand.

The CM's concern came after reports of mutton shops being torched in Hathras district and innumerable instances of moral policing where young boys and girls in friendly conversations were allegedly harassed by anti-Romeo squads of the police.
Expressing his displeasure over such incidents, Yogi warned the officials of stringent action if such cases were not contained.
Presiding over a meeting of top officials, including chief secretary Rahul Bhatnagar, principal secretary (home) Debashish Panda and DGP Javeed Ahmed, Yogi said such incidents should be tackled with an iron hand.
