In a big relief to sacked Uttar Pradesh minister and controversial independent legislator Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya, the CBI has given him a clean chit in the DSP Zia ul Haq murder case after the agency failed to get any credible evidence against him.

The investigative agency, which filed its probe report in the special CBI court on Thursday along with the results of Raja Bhaiya’s lie-detector test, said that it has not found any evidence linking the sacked minister with the murder of the cop.

The slain DSP's wife Parveen Azad had named Raja Bhaiya as conspirator in the murder of her husband. The agency had interrogated Raja Bhaiya for several hours on two successive days and later made him undergo a lie detector test.

Raja Bhaiya's name was also not there in the charge sheet filed by the CBI earlier in the court. The CBI has claimed in the charge sheet that Suresh Yadav, the brother of the Walipur village head Nanhen Yadav, had been killed by his own gun in a scuffle before the arrival of Haq at the scene of crime. The village head's son Babloo Yadav and his two brothers had been booked for killing the DSP.

Raja Bhaiya had been sacked after the slain DSP's wife accused him of killing her husband. Raja Bhaiya had claimed that he was innocent and was in the state capital when the killings took place.

Haq had been killed by unidentified assailants soon after he arrived at Walipur after getting information about a clash there. The violence erupted after Nanhen Yadav had been gunned down near the village and a mob had gone on the rampage suspecting involvement of the rival group in the killing. In the ensuing violence Nahen Yadav's brother Suresh Yadav was also killed.
