Crime Patrol: Another BJP leader killed in UP, party blames SP govt (Episode 515 on 5th June 2015)

The Inside Story

Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh

Local BJP leader shot dead in Muzaffarnagar

On Tuesday morning, Om Vir Singh, a local BJP leader in Muzaffarnagar district's Mirapur area, was shot dead while returning to his residence. Singh's murder takes place barely three days after Dadri BJP leader Vijay Pandit was shot dead. The police said that Singh was on his way to his native village when two unidentified assailants shot him from behind. Singh was the vice-president of BJP's Mirapur (city) committee and was appointed by the serving BJP Muzaffarnagar president, Satya Pal Sharma.

Mirapur is one of the Assembly segments that constitute the Bijnore Lok Sabha seat. As per the police, Singh had retaliated but was shot again and died on the spot. The BJP claimed that the death was part of a political conspiracy hatched by the Samajwadi Party to eliminate local support for the BJP. After his body was taken for post-mortem, BJP workers protested and demanded justice. Similar protests took place near his residence at Punjabi Colony in Mirapur.

The police are investigating the case from all angles, and the FIR makes no mention of the fact that Singh was a BJP leader. The SP Crime, Muzaffarnagar, Rakesh Jouli, said that they are looking at all possible angles. This incident has raised concerns about the safety of BJP leaders in the state.
