Family members of a man, who had died during an anti-CAA protest on December 20, have lodged a complaint against police for allegedly shooting him dead.
The family of Suleiman alleged that he was picked up by the police and was shot dead outside a madrassa on the day when protests erupted in Bijnor against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Suleiman's brother Shoaib said, "My brother had gone to offer prayers on Friday. He was picked up by three cops when he came out of the mosque and was shot dead outside a madrassa."
"I have full faith in the judiciary. I feel that justice will be served," Shoaib said.
Suleiman's father also said: "Police have shot dead my son. I have full faith in the system and I urge the police to ensure justice for us."
Vishvajeet Shrivastava, SP Rural, said that the complaint will be part of the ongoing investigation lodged by the police against the protesters.
At least 19 people have been killed in protests against the new law in different parts of Uttar Pradesh.
