8-year-old dies in crossfire during encounter in UP

Madhav Bhardwaj, who was playing near the orchard, was hit by a bullet in his head.

The Uttar Pradesh government has taken cognisance of the incident and ordered a probe.

AN 8-year-old boy was shot and killed in police crossfire in northern India, an officer said today.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh to his family.

"The post-mortem report has revealed bullet injury as the reason for the child's death but it is yet to be ascertained as to who fired the shot". Though the police said that there was an exchange of fire, the villagers have denied it. However, on the way to the hospital, they told the family to take the boy there themselves as they "had to go and fetch more forces for the encounter, " said the Hindustan Times report.

Police said they were told that the couple wrapped the baby in a sweatshirt and brought him to their home before calling 9-1-1. The source said that the woman was visiting family at the Redberry Parkway home at the time of the birth.

The police say their team had gone to the village after a tip-off that the robbers were hiding there, and tried to negotiate their surrender, but they started firing.

Since the height of the child is 3 ft 6 inches, it cannot be denied that the police team might have opened fire aiming for the leg of escaping criminal, but it unfortunately hit the child, the officer said. "I froze for a moment". "The boy was admitted to hospital but he died". One of the cops took the child into his lap and ran towards a crossing.

"A case has been registered at the highway police station against four unidentified people on the basis of the complaint lodged by the boy's father", Mamgain said.

The victim's grandfather Shiv Shankar said the policemen were sitting in the field and when asked, they told the villagers not to bother about them.
