Inspector Subodh Kumar and a local youth were killed in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr last year when a mob went on a rampage over allegations of illegal cow slaughter.

Sedition charges were slapped on 44 people who were accused of instigating violence in Chingravathi area of Bulandshahr on 3 December last year, which claimed two lives, including that of a cop.

As many as 44 people were sent to the jail, while six have got bail nearly after eight months of the violence.
