The Delhi Police on Thursday gave a clean-chit to east Delhi MP Maheish Girri and NDMC’s vice-chairman Karan Singh Tanwar in MM Khan’s murder case, saying no evidence was found against them in the probe.

The police also claimed that they have completed their investigation and the chargesheet will be filed soon.

Addressing the media, chief spokesperson of Delhi Police Taj Hassan said the unfortunate murder of an honest NDMC official is being “politicised” for political mileage and investigation into the case is being done without any pressure or bias.

“Unfortunately this case is now being politicised. We took all relevant documents from NDMC and examined them thoroughly. But at no point the scrutiny of documents throw up any evidence against the BJP MP and NDMC vice-chairman,” said Hassan.

It has come to light that a day after Khan was murdered for allegedly refusing to take bribe from Delhi hotelier Ramesh Kakkar, Jung’s office had purportedly sent Kakkar’s petition against Khan to NDMC asking for “action as per law”.

Without naming the AAP, the police dismissed the controversial letters being circulated by the party as not having any connection to the murder.

Joint Commissioner of Police (southeastern range) RP Upadhyay said the investigation is being done without any bias. “With the arrest of all the accused persons in the case we have recovered the weapon of offence, vehicle used and the money given to the contract killers,” Upadhyay said.

“The Delhi Police should be allowed to do an impartial probe. Let them complete the investigation. No political colour should be given to the case. People holding constitutional posts should not lower its dignity by making indecent comments,” minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju told reporters.
