A local court on Saturday remanded five days police custody to all the four accused including BSP MLA Shekhar Tiwari in the case related to the murder of PWD engineer MK Gupta.

The Chief Judicial Magistrate Samarpal Singh granted five days police remand beginning from Sunday to Shekhar Tiwari, Putti Rajput, Manoj Awasthi and Vinay Tiwari who were produced by the police before the court on Saturday, officials said.

Gupta was allegedly beaten to death by Tiwari and his two associates after he reportedly refused to pay a "huge sum" for birthday celebrations of Chief Minister Mayawati next month.
