Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday warned that nobody, including former minister Raja Bhaiya, will be spared, if found guilty in the murders of UP DSP Zia-ul-Haq, a panchayat chief in Kunda and his brother. Speaking to CNN-IBN, the Samajwadi Party leader also alleged that many of the issues in UP are being created by the political opponents like the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
"I have done what I could have done to prevent the situation. I want to state it clearly, no one, including Raja Bhaiya will be spared," Akhilesh, son of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, said. The DSP was killed in clashes that broke out after the murder of the panchayat chief and his brother in Raja Bhaiya's constituency.
"It will be wrong to say that police is being slow because the case has been handed over to the CBI as well," Akhilesh further said.
Speaking to CNN-IBN, Raja Bhaiya had said that he was being framed and that his aide Guddu Singh, who has been arrested, too was innocent. He added that Guddu Singh was in Lucknow at the time of the murder and that he was not involved.
"Was Guddu Singh with Raja Bhaiya at my residence? I don't know who comes with whom to my place," Akhilesh remarked.
