His kin had met the chief minister in Raipur to demand for a high-level investigation and strictest action against the accused.

Addressing media persons on Wednesday evening, Sai said, “Sadhram Yadav, who was brutally killed, had no quarrel with the accused. It seems that the murder wasn’t of a person but of an ideology and this requires a detailed investigation.”
