CBI tightens grip over Raja Bhaiya

LUCKNOW, Mar 18, 2013, DHNS:

The noose has tightened around the sacked Uttar Pradesh minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhiaya, an accused in the killing of DSP Zia-ul-Haq, after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing the triple killings at Kunda in Pratapgarh district, detained Singh’s two supporters and quizzed thems.

The two youth, identified as Manjit Yadav and Bawan Saroj, were quizzed for several hours
at Kunda on Sunday, according to the sources here.

Sources said the CBI team was likely to interrogate the Kunda Nagar Panchayat chairman Gulshan Yadav, a close aide of Raja Bhaiya and an accused in the Kunda killings.

On Sunday, the bureau quizzed another Raja Bhiaya supporter and the Pratapgarh district vice-president of Samajwadi Party (SP) Chabinath Yadav in connection with the killings.

Raja Bhaiya's representative Hariom Srivastava is also on the CBI radar, sources said. The bureau is learnt to have identified some people whom it suspects were part of the mob that killed the DSP and another person at Walipur village on March 2 last year.

The CBI on Saturday had recovered missing official revolver of the slain cop. Its examination revealed that it had not been used in the killing of the DSP as had been claimed earlier.
Earlier, Kamta Pal, a supporter of Raja Bhaiya had surrendered before the CBI.
