DSP murder: CBI questions police officers in Kunda

New Delhi: A ten-member Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team questioned local police officers in Kunda, Uttar Pradesh on Saturday in connection with the murder of DSP Zia-ul-Haq a week ago. The Station Officer, who had called circle officer Zia-Ul-Haq, is being questioned as are other policemen who were with him when he went to control a frenzied mob.

The DSP was shot dead along with two more people, one of whom was the gram pradhan and the other, his brother.

Meanwhile, BJP leader Yogi Aditynanath has said it is wrong to target Kunda MLA Raja Bhaiya, who has been charged in the murder of the DSP. He said that the Samajwadi Party government was making him a scapegoat. "The circle officer was killed by an agitating mob. It is wrong to target Raja Bhaiya."

The slain DSP's widow had accused Raja Bhaiya of his murder, following which a case was registered against him. Even though he resigned as a minister, in an interview to CNN-IBN, Raja Bhaiya denied all the charges against him and said that he was a victim of political conspiracy.
