Evil dead? Murdered BSP leader accused of duping

Two non-resident Indians (NRIs) on Friday registered a case of duping against business tycoon and Bahujan Samaj Party leader Deepak Bharadwaj, who had been murdered in his own farmhouse in March. The complaint, which was filed at the Economic Offences Wing (EOW), included the names of other members of his family.

The NRIs in their complaint have alleged that Bharadwaj had illegally  sold off  their lands, valued at crores of rupees, by forging documents.

The complaint was registered late on Wednesday by US-based NRIs Amarjeet Singh and K K Ratan. 'The NRIs had given the authority to Bharadwaj to take care of their lands. But, Bharadwaj sold off their land using forged papers,' said a police officer quoting from the complaint. A case regarding the complaint has been registered against Bharadwaj's family and some other people. Bharadwaj has not been booked in the case because f he is dead, police said.

‘Singh has said in his complaint that he had purchased approximately three acres of land in south Delhi's Rajokri area, where he wanted to build a hospital after returning from America.
This was illegal sold off by Bharadwaj,’ said an official investigating the case. Similarly, Ratan had purchased two acres of land in Samalkha town in Haryana that was also sold by Bhardwaj, police said.

Bhardwaj was killed by two shooters at his farm house in south Delhi's Rajokri area in March. The businessman’s son had been arrested in the case.

In 1997, Bharadwaj had been accused of having illegally taken over a 40-acre land in Kapasera. Bharadwaj and his son Nitesh had been arrested in the case, but the BSP leader had won the case in the court. He had later sold off the disputed property.
