Dr Sachan planned BP Singh's murder: UP govt

New Delhi: The Uttar Pradesh government has claimed that it has fresh proof to indicate that Lucknow CMO Dr Sachan was behind the murder of his predecessor, but it still has no answers on who killed Sachan inside the jaill.

Killed within the premises of Lucknow jail, Dr Sachan's death continues to raise questions by the day.

UP Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekhar said, "After becoming the CMO BP Singh started investigating the financial irregularities that happened during the tenure of Dr Sachan and he threatened to file an FIR, so Sachan spoke to Verma and hatched a plan to kill him."

"Sachan was beginning to fear Dr BP Singh, hence he got him murdered," he added.

The state has come to the conclusion after the interrogation of two sharp shooters arrested for killing former CMO Dr BP Singh and one of the associates of Sachan, Mr Verma.

The interrogation report said that Dr Sachan was worried that his predeccesor Dr BP Singh might expose all irregularities that he was allegedly committing. Singh had threatened Sachan that he will be filing an FIR against him as well. Sachan wanted to contest elections, hence Singh's threat of an FIR was weighing heavily on his mind. He got in touch with his friend Verma to plan the killing of his own colleague, Dr BP Singh.

The state administration said that they have recovered the pistol that was used in the killing of Dr Singh. The revolver used to kill Singh has been recovered from the house of one of the shooters, Anand Tiwari, officials said.

But Sachan had already been arrested by the police for plotting the murder of Dr Singh. The questions that remain unanswered are:

-Why is the UP government repeating what it has already said ?

-And is there any connection between Sachan being the murderer and Sachan being killed himself?
