Rajendra Singh 'falsely implicated' in Dara encounter

June 02, 2012 00:42 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party national secretary Kirit Somaiya on Friday alleged that his party colleague Rajendra Singh Rathore was falsely implicated in the Dara Singh encounter case and demanded action against some Congress leaders.

The BJP will approach both court and the National Human Rights Commission after Rathore was allegedly "intentionally implicated and mentally harassed for 3 years and then forced into jail for 2 months only to come out scot free," he said at a press conference in Jodhpur.

He also questioned the role of CBI and alleged that the investigating agency had implicated Rathore on the direction of Congress leaders.

Rathore, the Chief Whip of the party in the state Assembly, was on Thursday discharged from allegations of being the main conspirator behind the encounter killing of liquor smuggler Dara Singh in 2006.
