A Rajasthan minister’s son is among six persons named in an FIR lodged in a murder case of a 45-year-old man in Hanumangarh court.
Harish Sindhi was shot dead on Monday by two accused Sukhbeer and Dharmendra in the court premises where he had gone for hearing of a murder case in which he was a witness.
While the duo was arrested on Monday, police named water resources minister Rampratap’s son Amit Sahu and three others, including Som Muni, Soma and Shrawan, in the FIR under various sections of IPC, including murder, attempt to murder, criminal conspiracy and 27 of Arms Act, police said.
The FIR was lodged by Monu Singh who was present with Sindhi in the court.
Sahu, however, denied any link with the murder and alleged he was being dragged in the case for “political reasons”.
“I have no link with the matter. I am being falsely implicated. The allegations against me are baseless,” Sahu said, adding he has not been approached by the police.
“I was present in the court premises. I had gone to the office of the collector which is located near the court. My presence there had nothing to do with the case,” he said.
Rampratap could not be contacted as he was in the cabinet meeting.
