An upcoming no-confidence vote at Morena zila panchyat allegedly led to murder of a 20-year-old youth on Saturday evening, said Morena police.
Police said the youth Vinay Tagore happened to be nephew of BSP leader and zila panchayat member Jagdish Tagore.
As per police sources, the zila panchayat president Geeta Harshana and her husband Inder Harshana allegedly exerted pressure on Jagdish to vote in Geeta’s favour once no confidence motion was moved against her. The motion was expected anytime as Geeta has completed two and a half years of her term.
As per rule a no-confidence motion can be brought against zila panchayat president once he/she completes two and half years of his/her term. Police suspect that Geeta and Inder with the help of others had abducted Jagdish at least two weeks back. However, no FIR was lodged in this regard.
According to town inspector Kotwali Morena Yogendra Singh Jadon, Jagdish was at her brother’s place at Gopalpur in Morena to mourn death of his brother’s wife on Saturday. He was accompanied by Inder Harshana and his accomplishes to his brother’s place. Once he reached there Jagdish refused to go with Harshana whereupon Harshana and his accomplices fired to intimidate him. It was during firing when one of the shots hit Vinay Tagore, grandson of Jagdish’s brother, who was standing near the railing at the roof. Vinay died while being taken to a hospital for treatment.
He said, “The accused abducted Jagdish. On receiving a complaint police started a hectic search to trace him and after raids at several places on Saturday night, the police finally found him at a village in Dholpur district of Rajasthan on Sunday afternoon. However people who had abducted him, succeeded in escaping. They are absconding. Police have launched a manhunt to arrest them.”
The TI said police had registered a case for murder, kidnapping against Geeta, her husband and several others.
Talking to the Hindustan Times BSP MLA from Dimni, Morena Balbir Singh Dandotia said BJP had unleashed a reign of terror in Morena against its political rivals. The murder was a glaring example of the same. He said if the accused were not arrested within a week the BSP would take to streets and call for a Morena bandh.
BJP district president in Morena Anoop Bhadoria said he was in a party meeting in Bhopal and was not aware what had actually happened. “I don’t believe the party leader Geeta Harshana is involved in any crime”, he added.
