Raja Bhaiya ready for polygraph test

Sacked Uttar Pradesh minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya, who is an accused in the Uttar Pradesh DSP Zia ul Haq’s murder case, on Tuesday agreed to undergo a lie detector test.

Singh told a special CBI court here that he was ready to face a polygraph test. The CBI, which is investigating the DSP murder case, had approached the court seeking permission to conduct the polygraph test on Raja Bhaiya, who has been accused by the slain DSP’s wife, Parveen Azad, of conspiring to kill the policeman.

Speaking to reporters outside the court, Raja Bhaiya said he wanted the truth to come out. “Truth must come out. I shall cooperate with the CBI in the investigation,” he said.

Raja Bhaiya also alleged that there was an attempt to impart a “political colour” to Haq’s killing. “I have been saying that there was a conspiracy against me,” he claimed.

The CBI has filed two charge sheets in the triple murders at Walipur village in Kunda, Pratapgarh district, on March 2 this year. Raja Bhaiya did not feature in either of them.

The probe agency, according to sources, has so far not been able to find any credible evidence against Raja Bhaiya, but did not want to take any chances.
The CBI had quizzed Raja Bhaiya for over 20 hours on two consecutive days recently. The agency did not seek his custody as it did not have any evidence against him, sources said.

Haq was allegedly killed by a mob at Walipur in Raja Bhaiya’s Assembly constituency Kunda. Haq had gone there after receiving information about the killing of Walipur village head Nanhen Yadav. His brother Suresh was also killed in the clashes on the same day.

He even claimed to have met Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and informed him about the violence at Walipur.
