Five persons were detained for violating prohibitory orders imposed in view of escalating tension over the brutal murder of a two-and-a-half-year-old girl in Tappal area of Aligarh. Eventually, the Provincial Armed Constabulary and Rapid Action Force have been deployed and senior officials including the district and sub-divisional magistrates were present in the area after messages calling for a 'Mahapanchayat' appeared on social media. The police have barred people from visiting the 200-meter area around the victim's house. Meanwhile, over a hundred people including members of some Hindu outfits protested against the girl's killing and demanded death sentence for the accused. Uttar Pradesh constituted a special investigation team to probe the murder.
