DSP was shot at once, bullet untraceable; too early to arrest Raja Bhaiya: UP ADG

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh ADG, Law and Order, Arun Kumar has said that the post-mortem report of slain DSP Zia-ul-Haq has shown only one bullet wound and that the bullet is untraceable. He added that the police is yet to find an eyewitness to the incident and that it needs to be established first who committed the crime before the conspiracy angle can be looked into.

Kumar added that the police was yet to identify the murder weapon.

"Three doctors have done the post-mortem. The report has revealed only one bullet wound. The bullet passed through his chest. We are yet to recover the bullet. It is untraceable. We have to identify the murder weapon too."

When asked whether Raja Bhaiya would be booked, Kumar said, "In a criminal conspiracy case, we have to first establish the crime," indicating that the former UP minister may not be booked any time soon.

Opposition leader Mayawati slammed the state government for its inaction.

"They have not taken action against Raja Bhaiya. There is no law and order in UP. President's rule is the only option. We will demand suspension of Question Hour in Parliament today."
