Killers of Surendra Singh provoked by Priyanka’s statement?

Amethi: The preliminary findings in the inquiry by Uttar Pradesh that had held three suspects for the murder of Smriti Irani’s Amethi campaigner Surendra Singh are out. It is suspected that the BJP event of distributing shoes in the constituency, which Congress general-secretary Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra had dubbed as an act to “insult Rahul Gandhi”, led to the murder of Singh.

The shoes were distributed at the Baraulia village in Amethi district, an event that Surendra Singh had supervised.
