CBI files chargesheet against five in Nanhe Yadav murder case

New Delhi, May 31 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday filed a chargesheet against five people in connection with the March 2 murder of village head Nanhe Yadav in Uttar Pradesh's Pratapgarh district.

Ajay Pal, Vijay Pal and Rakesh Pal, Sanjay Pratap Singh and Rajiv Pratap Singh have been named as the accused in the chargesheet.

Sanjay Pratap Singh was the driver of former Uttar Pradesh minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiya.

Yadav was shot dead in Balipur village near his house.

His death sparked off a chain of events which led to the killing of his younger brother Suresh Yadav and Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Zia-ul Haq.

The case was originally handed over to the state, but on March 8, was handed over to the CBI on the recommendation of the Uttar Pradesh Government.

This was one of four cases registered by the CBI to probe the murders of Yadav, Haq and violence in the area.

Praveen Azad, wife of Zia-ul-Haq, had named Raja Bhaiya's drivers Guddu Singh and Rohit Singh, Kunda zila panchayat chairman Gulshan Yadav and Raja Bhaiya's local representative Hariom Srivastava for beating and killing her husband.

However, the allegations could not be verified during investigation and the CBI arrested the pradhan's son and his brothers Phoolchand and Pawan and an associate, Manjit Yadav, for killing Haq. (ANI)
