Cop killing: Accused sent to CBI custody
Lucknow, Mar 12 : An Uttar Pradesh court on Tuesday sent former state minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya's two aides to five-day Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection to the killing of Deputy Superintendent of Police Zia-ul-Haque in the north Indian state.
The state police had arrested Guddu Singh and Rajiv Singh on Mar 4.
The CBI is investigating the murders of senior police officer Zia-ul-Haque and two others in the north Indian state.
The probe agency has named Raja Bhaiya and four others in one of its four FIRs.
Raja Bhaiya had resigned after he was booked in the killing of the Deputy Superintendent of Police. However, he has denied the charges connecting him to the murder.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said: "Whichever minister has been involved in wrongdoing, we will definitely order an enquiry."
The police, however, has not questioned or arrested Raja Bhaiya so far.
Meanwhile, the autopsy report of Zia-ul-Haque has revealed that the cop, who went to probe into the murder of Pradhan (village headman) and his brother in the Kunda village was beaten and dragged along the ground before being shot dead, the Uttar Pradesh police said.
He had severe injuries on his legs and head.
According to allegations, the four men accused of dragging and killing the slain cop were men of Raja Bhaiya.
