Two days after a BJP worker Surendra Singh, a former head of Baraulia village, who had actively participated in Smriti Irani’s Lok Sabha campaigning in Amethi was shot, police Monday arrested three of five suspects. The FIR names five accused and mentions other unidentified villagers.
“We have arrested three suspects in the Amethi murder case, while two suspects are still absconding,” Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP) O P Singh said. Surendra Singh was shot dead late Saturday night while sleeping outside his house at Baraulia village in the constituency.
“As many as seven persons were taken into custody and they were interrogated. Among those, there were three who were linked with the incident,” Mr. Singh said.
“As of now, two accused persons are still absconding and we are tracking them,” the DGP said.
