MLA Surendra Singh defends the accused
A BJP MLA defended the accused after the incident came to light. He argued that the accused fired in self-defense, which led to the death of the villager. Dozens of his family would have been killed if he had not fired in self-defense. If many people from the other side are badly injured, they should also be listened to.
The MLA further said- the incident should be condemned but the justice side should also be kept in front. Anyone who has committed a mistake should be punished. If someone is shot, then he should also be punished, but those who have killed 6 to 6 people with sticks and sticks should also be punished. This is my request to the administration, there is an appeal.
