Boy killed in police firing in Mathura

Uttar Pradesh: Police crossfire claims 8-year-old boy's life

However, it is not clear if Madhav was shot with a bullet from the police or the alleged criminals.

On a tip off that some criminals were hiding in Mohanpur village and were planning to commit a robbery, a police team had gone to the village in Mathura on Wednesday evening.

Madhav was playing outside his house with his friends at around 6 pm and during the crossfire, a stray bullet hit the child.

According to NDTV, Madhav Bhardwaj, a nursery student, was hit in the head by a bullet during an "encounter" by the Uttar Pradesh police in Mohanpura village.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath offered his condolences to the family and compensation of 500,000 rupees ($7,835). "The body of the child has been sent for postmortem, to identify who initiated the firing", Swapnil told reporters here.

The grandfather of the boy alleged that police didn't even take the boy to the hospital. I was unable to understand what had happened.

The encounters by Uttar Pradesh police have risen despite notices from the National Human Rights Commission.

Principal Secretary, Home, Arvind Kumar said that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken cognizance of the "unfortunate incident" and ordered a probe by the Inspector General of Police, Agra. The boy was admitted to hospital but he died. One of the cops took the child into his lap and ran towards a crossing. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he died.

As per reports, a team of police personnel acting on the basis of a tip-off arrived in Adooki village off the Mathura highway to nab a criminal.

Since the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government took over in Uttar Pradesh past year, at least 32 people have been killed in over 900 encounters.
