UP Minister Convoy Hits Boy in Gonda, Dies; CM Adityanath Announces Compensation

Uttar Pradesh Minister's Convoy Runs Over 5-Year-Old Yogi Adityanath Orders Probe

An eight-year-boy died after allegedly being hit by a vehicle in the motorcade of Uttar Pradesh cabinet minister Om Prakash Rajbhar in Karnailganj, Gonda on Saturday.

A day after a boy died after being knocked down by a vehicle alleged to be part of the cavalcade of a minister in Gonda, the minister whose name figured denied the allegations and claimed that no vehicle in his fleet was involved in the tragic incident.

Meanwhile, the Yogi Adityanath government has announced a compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the family of the deceased. The boy died on the spot.

Om Prakash heads the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, which is an ally of Uttar Pradesh's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. An FIR has been registered in the case. Later, the villagers placed the body of the victim on the road and blocked the road for an hour.




Hridesh said a police complaint of death by negligence and reckless driving had been lodged and investigations were ongoing. After the incident took place the police were informed who did not reach the spot on time. There is no pressure from anyone.

The incident comes two days after a farmer of Orai in Uttar Pradesh's Jalaun district alleged that the state jail minister Jai Kumar Singh Jaiki's cavalcade, comprising more than 35 vehicles, ran over his farm, ruining all the seeds he had sowed a week back.

Police said the minister's cavalcade was passing through Colonelganj area on Saturday. "Police officials advised me not to go back as people were protesting", Om Prakash Rajbhar told CNN-News18.
