SP leader murders youth in UP

Sanjay Pandey LUCKNOW: April 5, 2013 DH News Service

Victim shot point-blank

In a murder reminiscent of a Bollywood movie, a Samajwadi Party leader allegedly killed a youth in Aligarh with the help of his supporters on Wednesday.

SP leader Kalicharan Yadav had reportedly declared publicly a few days ago that he would kill Gaurav Yadav on this day – and he carried out the threat in broad daylight in a city locality, triggering panic.

According to police sources, Gaurav had an affair with a girl from the same locality. The two had eloped a few months ago. Kalicharan nursed ill feelings towards him since then.
Gaurav, who was later arrested after a case of kidnapping was a registered against him, had been enlarged on bail just a few days ago.


The SP leader and his supporters attacked the victim with sticks when he was passing by his residence. He was thrashed and then allegedly shot at point-blank range. Gaurav was rushed to a hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

A case has been registered against the culprits and a manhunt launched, police said.
In the past also, SP leaders have been found to be on the wrong side of the law despite repeated warnings issued by party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Some days ago, two ruling party leaders were accused of assaulting people and trying to grab their land in Pilibhit and Rampur districts.

A few months back, minister for secondary education Vinod Singh alias Pandit Singh abducted a senior medical officer in Gonda district when he refused to issue appointment letters to candidates recommended by the politician for the post of doctors under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM).

Mulayam has warned his party leaders that action would be taken against them if they did not mend their ways. It seems that the repeated warnings have no effect.
