Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath will meet the family members of the deceased police inspector Subodh Kumar in Lucknow tomorrow.

Kumar, who was posted at the Syana Police Station, died in violence after a mob went on a rampage and clashed with police over an illegal cattle slaughter.

Adityanath on Monday declared a compensation of Rs 40 lakh to wife, Rs 10 lakh for parents and a government job for a kin of the Kumar who died in violence in Bulandshahr.

Kumar's son Abhishek yesterday said ''today my father lost his life in this Hindu-Muslim dispute, tomorrow whose father will lose his life?'' 

''My father wanted me to be a good citizen who doesn't incite violence in society in the name of religion,'' he further said. 

The incident resulted in widespread outrage across the country with political parties calling for a probe into the incident.
