BKU leader Dilbag Singh staged attack on himself to get arms license: Uttar Pradesh Police

New Delhi:

In a shocking revelation, the suspects who attacked Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Dilbag Singh in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur have claimed that he had planned the attack on himself to obtain an arms license.

The news comes two days after the BKU leader (who witnessed the killing of farmers at Lakhimpur Kheri in October 2021) was allegedly attacked by armed assailants.

UP Police said that Dilbagh Singh has identified the suspects. The police further said that the BKU leader was provided with a gunman for protection, but he discharged him on the day of the attack.

On Wednesday, Lakhimpur Kheri Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Suman said, “They have a gunman to provide them security from the administration, but he discharged the gunman on his own and the same day the firing incident took place.”

“Last night, he claimed that he was shot thrice. We have registered an FIR. The FSL team from Lucknow called for a ballistic report. He identified the suspects, who instead said that He was planning such an attack on himself to get the arms license,” he added.

Notably, according to police, BKU’s Lakhimpur Kheri district president, Dilbag Singh was attacked on Tuesday after two unidentified men on a bike chased his SUV and opened fire on him.

The BKU leader had told the police that his police guard was on leave when the attack took place.
