Three held over killing of Amethi BJP worker

Tuesday, 28 May 2019 | PTI | Amethi

Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the killing of a BJP worker in Amethi two days ago, police said on Monday.

Director General of Police (DGP) OP Singh said there was a local-level political rivalry between the deceased, Surendra Singh, 50, and the father of one of the accused.

“We have arrested three persons. After the incident was reported, as many as seven people were taken into custody and they were thoroughly quizzed,” Singh told reporters here. “Among the seven people, there were three who were linked with the incident.”

Amethi Superintendent of Police Rajesh Kumar said those arrested have been identified as Ramchandra, Dharmanath and Naseem, while two persons were absconding.

Singh, a close aide of newly-elected Amethi MP Smriti Irani, was shot when he was sleeping in his house at Baraulia village, 25 km from the district headquarters, on Saturday night. The former village head was referred to a Lucknow hospital, but succumbed to injuries during treatment.
