Gangster indicts MP in policeman's murder
Gangster Rajan Tiwari, who was arrested by the Delhi police yesterday, has disclosed that he had been hired for Rs1.5 million by Rajya Sabha member D P Yadav and Samajwadi Party politician from Bihar Pappu Yadav to kill Inspector Preetam Singh of the Uttar Pradesh police.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Karnal Singh said Preetam Singh was shot dead by car-borne criminals last November. Tiwari, Munna Shukla, Ritesh Tiwari and Lallan Singh, all members of the Sriprakash Shukla gang, allegedly committed the murder.
Ganga Ram Koli, Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Dholpur, Rajasthan, from whose house Tiwari was arrested yesterday, is still away from the capital and has not been interrogated. But Tiwari has denied any links with Koli and said he used to visit his house only because it was close to that of D P Yadav.
Police sources said a case of criminal conspiracy is likely to be filed against D P Yadav and Pappu Yadav for harbouring Tiwari.
The gangster also disclosed that he was being motivated by the two Yadavs and one Pratap Mallik to kill Munna Bajrangi, who is now lodged in Naini Jail, Allahabad. But the plan could not be finalised.
Preetam Singh was known for his strong action against gangsters in Meerut and Ghaziabad districts of Uttar Pradesh. But D P Yadav suspected the officer of having assisted in the escape of a criminal who had murdered his elder brother Ram Singh Yadav in 1997.
Tiwari said the conspiracy was hatched at Pappu Yadav's house where D P Yadav, Pappu Yadav, Pratap Mallik, Lallan Singh, Munna Shukla and Ritesh Mishra were all present.
