In her tweet on Tuesday, Priyanka said that in two days the crime rate has doubled which shows the commitment of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.
Three prime accused have been arrested in connection with the killing of a journalist Ratan Singh who was allegedly shot dead in Phephna village of Ballia district, said police on Tuesday.

“Three prime accused arrested from the spot. Search for other accused is underway. Although the deceased was a journalist the incident does not involve anything related to journalism. It is completely about the land dispute between the two parties,” said Subhash Chandra Dubey, DIG Azamgarh.
