Additionally, the BSP leader emphasized that the “issue should not be politicised”.

“The incident of the brutal murder of two brothers in Badaun is very sad and highly condemnable. Strict legal action is necessary against the culprits so that the law and order environment does not deteriorate, especially during election time, nor does politics take place behind it,” she said on X.

In an incident on Tuesday, two children were brutally murdered in Badaun’s Baba Colony. Subsequently, one of the accused, Sajid, was killed in a police encounter.

The surviving brother of the deceased children, who also witnessed the incident, has alleged that two individuals took his brothers to the terrace.

As reported by PTI, BJP MP from Budaun, Sanghamitra Maurya, visited the victims’ house and assured them of her full support. “I condemn the murder of the two minor boys,” she said.

Referring to the SP leader’s remarks on the incident, Maurya said this was no time to do politics.

“Samajwadi Party is doing politics on the issue because its so-called fort of Budaun was demolished by people here in 2019. The SP candidate must have seen that there was no one asking about him in Budaun today. This is why they are doing politics on the issue,”  Maurya said.
