Issue “highly politicised,” says Rijiju

Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on Saturday said the Dadri incident, in which a 50-year-old man was killed for allegedly eating beef, has been “highly politicised”.

The Minister, who was talking to journalists at the sidelines of an event, said the government will take action once it receives a report from the U.P. government. “Excessive politics is being done on the issue. Once we get the report, we will take action accordingly,” Mr. Rijiju said. The Centre had on Thursday sought a detailed report from the U.P. government on the incident and asked it to ensure that no such incident recurs.
