Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Jan 30 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday assured stringent action against the perpetrators of Kasganj violence which claimed one life and left two injured.

Adityanath asserted that those found guilty will not be spared.

"The Government will not tolerate any kind of corruption or anarchy in the state. Strict action will be taken against anyone who indulges in such acts," Adityanath told reporters here.

One person, identified as Chandan Gupta, died and two others were injured in the Kasganj violence that broke out on Jan 26.

The clash broke out after an unauthorised bike rally was taken out by RSS-affiliated students' group Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in the city to commemorate the Republic Day and allegedly stones were pelted at them during the roadshow. (ANI)
