BJP councillor acquitted in murder case

BJP councillor Madhav Prasad, who was accused of murdering a party worker just two days before the 2012 MCD polls, has been acquitted by a Delhi court, which found the complaint against him to be false and has directed that action be taken against the complainant.

Besides Prasad, a councillor from Sangam Park, co-accused Anil Yadav and Pinku were also acquitted of the charge of murdering Jai Prakash. Additional sessions judge Pawan Jain acquitted them after prosecution witness Virender Yadav, who claimed to be the eyewitness in the case and on whose complaint the case was registered, turned hostile in the court.

While setting the trio free, the court directed that a complaint be made before the appropriate court against Virender for giving false evidence as he had wrongly told police that he saw Prasad and Anil holding Prakash while Pinku stabbed him twice in the chest.

“It can safely be culled out that Virender Yadav had either made a false complaint against the accused persons with some ulterior motive or he turned hostile deliberately for some personal gain,” the judge said.
