Azad told reporters that she was feeling the need for supervision by the apex court so that Haque’s case “may not take 30 years like the murder case of former Dy SP K P Singh”, who was killed in Gonda on March 1982. The judgment in the Gonda case was pronounced on April 4 last.

On her way to Lucknow from the native village of the Dy SP, Azad said that so far she had full faith in the probe being conducted by the CBI. Azad said that if required she was “ready to make any sacrifice” to ensure that the assailants of her husband were punished.

She said that she could go to the extent of leaving police job and fight the case like a common man.

Asked what would she do if former minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raj a Bhaiyya was not found guilty in the CBI probe, Azad said that she had accused other persons as well. She said that next step would be taken after considering the situation.

Haque was shot dead in Balipur village, 75 km west of the Pratapgarh district headquarters, on March 2.

After the murder of village head Nanhe Yadav, the Kunda circle officer had rushed to the spot and was killed by a mob.

Nanhe’s brother, Suresh, was also killed. Azad had alleged the hand of Raghuraj Pratap Singh in the murder. Now, the CBI is probing the case.
