After the suspicious death of a witness, a case has been lodged against the UP minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh as called as Raja Bhaiya. Yogendra Yadav, 19, the key witness in the 2013 killing of Circle Officer (CO) Haq, died in a road accident late on Friday night in Arkha village of Unchahaar. The witness’s uncle alleges that Raja Bhaiya conspired and killed Yogendra, in order to clear off an important evidence in the notorious Zia-ul-Haq case.
Haq was shot and lynched by a mob in Balipur in 2013 where the official had gone after violence broke out between two groups.
Along with Raja Bhaiya, who won the assembly election yet again from Kunda in Pratapgarh, a case has also been registered against his cousin and Member of Legislative Council (MLC) Akshay Pratap Singh and five others, said the police on Sunday.
