  • Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Thursday urged for legal measures in the Budaun double murder case, where two children were allegedly killed by a man. 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.
