Amethi: The preliminary findings in the inquiry by Uttar Pradesh Police 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.

Several Hindi newspapers have described the murder as a result of “rajnaitik ranjish (political animus)”, stopping short of attributing it to any provocative statement. This, even as Singh’s son Abhay Pratap had expressed his suspicion right on the day after the murder, saying that some supporters of the Congress were behind the crime.

Sources say that Singh, who had been a part of the BJP local unit since 1997, had returned home quite late (around 11:30 PM) from a wedding ceremony that night. His family members heard gunshots and rushed out to find Singh’s body lying in a pool of blood. He had been shot at point-blank as well as from a close range.

The family and some villagers then took Singh to a health centre nearby from where he was taken to Lucknow. He breathed his last on the way.

After the murder of the former pradhan of the village, the police sprang into action based on a written complaint of the murdered activist’s elder brother Narendra Singh.

The police filed a case of plotting a conspiracy against BDC Ramchandra Pasi, Dharmanath Gupta, Nasim, Wasim and Atul Singh alias Golu of Village Peedhi under the Fursatganj police station area.

On Sunday night, the police arrested Ramchandra Pasi, Dharmanath Gupta and Nasim from different places.

In the meantime, the newly elected MP from Amethi moved the villagers of Baraulia and Amarbojha with her gesture of being a pallbearer of her aide’s body to the cremation ground and soothing the bereaved family with her kind words.
