CBI makes no headway in Kunda DSP's killing

 Even five days after taking over the investigation, the CBI is still groping in the dark and has not made any headway in the Kunda killings.

According to sources, the agency is examining whether the slain deputy superintendent of police Zia-ul-Haque was investigating a case that might have been connected to the sacked UP minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya’s supporters.


The Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday got the remand of two of the accused persons — Guddu Singh and Rajiv Kumar — for five days, starting from Wednesday.
Both had been arrested with two other accused in connection with the killing of three persons, including the DSP, in Kunda on March 2.

Sources said the agency sleuths have not been able to ascertain the sequence of events of the crime that took place in Walipur village.

The service revolver of the slain cop is still missing.

Officials said the CBI has cell phone call details of Bhaiya and other accused persons.
Bhaiya had publicly said he was being briefed about the incident by his men from the spot.

He had claimed that he was the first person to know about the violence and had informed chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Sources said a team may go to Deoria to meet the slain cop’s widow Parveen Azad.
The agency had sought people’s help in cracking the murders.

It had issued an appeal to the residents of Walipur village, which falls in Bhaiya’s Assembly constituency of Kunda, to assist the agency in a fair probe.

Haque had prepared a history-sheet of Bhaiya, which had 47 cases against him including those of murder.
