Police step up probe, oppn seeks Raja Bhaiyya’s arrest
Police on Tuesday stepped up the probe in its senior officer’s killing in Uttar Pradesh’s Pratapgarh district with a team of experts visiting the area where he was brutally assaulted by a mob and shot dead even as opposition parties demanded arrest of former minister Raja Bhaiyya, who is accused in the crime.

Additional Director General (ADG) Law and Order Arun Kumar said that while experts were scanning the area for the bullet that pierced the chest of deputy superintendent of police Zia ul Haq, they were yet to find it.

Metal detectors and other techniques had been pressed into service at the site but so far no bullet has been found, he said.

The bullet had pierced Haq’s from the back, punctured his rib cage and exited through his chest on the right side. Other than this, the autopsy conducted by three local doctors and videographed, revealed several injuries on Haq’s body, suggesting that he had been beaten up by the mob and hit by an iron rod on his head.

Refuting contradictions in the autopsy, Arun Kumar said there was no way that there could be divergent views on the autopsy as the whole post-mortem was conducted by a panel of doctors and was filmed. Police also stepped up its probe into the killing of village headman Nanhe Yadav and his brother Suresh Yadav, too, and was seeking to solve the series of crimes from the killings of the duo.

Parveen, widow of Haq, Tuesday said she was satisfied that a CBI probe had been ordered into her husband’s death.

RUCKUS IN ASSEMBLY OVER TANDA CURFEW

The Uttar Pradesh assembly witnessed pandemonium over the communal violence in Tanda area of Ambedknagar district when BJP members created ruckus alleging that the ruling Samajwadi Party was ignoring the majority Hindu community. The BJP members also trooped into the well of the house during zero hour on an adjournment notice after state parliamentary affairs minister Mohammad Azam Khan alleged that the houses and shops of innocent Muslims were burnt by the miscreants.

He said that curfew was imposed in Tanda to prevent spread of the violence after the arrest of 33 people in connection with the murder of Hindu Yuva Vahini district president Ram Babu Gupta on 2 March.
