He had received a call that morning asking him to go to a police station in another village, Chigrawati, about 5km (3 miles) away, where an angry mob of villagers had gathered.

Tears rolled down the eyes of family, friends and colleagues of slain Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh when the body was consigned to flames in a state funeral in the evening.

An 18-year-old protester was also killed in the violence.

They set fire to dozens of vehicles, hurled stones and also fired at police who retaliated with gunfire. The officer further told The Indian Express, "The killed police officer has been identified as Inspector Subodh Verma, who was injured in the attack and was declared brought dead in the hospital". In addition to the two young boys, Raj has named one man who does not live in the village anymore and three others who the local villagers haven't heard of.

It was not clear if the man is Sumit Kumar.

UP DGP OP Singh has called the Bulandshahr incident a big conspiracy, adding that the matter is not just a law and order issue.

Of the 27, at least four are workers and functionaries of right-wing organisations such as Bajrang Dal, the officials said.

Additional forces have been deployed to maintain peace in the area.

Meanwhile, police have arrested four persons in connection with the violence.

"Tension has eased in strife-torn Bulandshahr and efforts are on to ensure there is no trouble in future", he said in Lucknow.
