Manipulative tactics of the powers-that-be in protecting their men from getting prosecuted in serious criminal cases appears to be in full swing. Close on the heels of several such cases which recently came to light it's turn for another one.

Manipulative tactics of the powers-that-be in protecting their men from getting prosecuted in serious criminal cases appears to be in full swing. Close on the heels of several such cases which recently came to light it's turn for another one.

Remember the sensational shoot-out in Jhusi's Ganesh Market on July 10, 2005 in which two innocent persons-- Lalla Gupta and Sunil Yadav-- lost their lives. Magazines of AK 47 rifles and other automatic weapons had been emptied not for the innocents.

The sharpshooters had come for Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Ganesh Yadav. But as the luck would have it Ganesh had  gone inside a barber's shop a few seconds before the killers arrived in fast moving vehicles on the scene where he was sitting with several other persons.

Samajwadi Party MLA from the same area Bijma Yadav, her brothers Lochan, Gyan Chand and Mulchand had been named in this incident which not only left Jhusi rattled but citizens of the city gaped in horror over the incident.

Now the game.

Much to the chagrin of BSP leaders, the victims and people in general the cops have removed the names of all the persons named in the FIR following the investigation carried out by the cops in the murder case.

Instead they have named five outside shooters Dilip Yadav, resident of Chewar, Azamgarh, Ravi Singh from the same place who headed a gang also, Pawan Srivastava, Jaitpur, Ambedkar Nagar, Naveen Rai, Bahadurpur, Deogaon, Azamgarh and Sanjai Singh, resident of Chandauli.

Except Dilip Yadav all the four named in the case have been gunned down by the STF in two separate encounters while Dilip who carries a reward of Rs 10,000 on his head is still on his toes.

If sources are correct Dilip is not in the country. Ravi, Pawan and Naveen were gunned down between Mau and Varanasi on July 24, 2005 when they were fleeing with a businessman and his wife whom they had kidnapped from Varanasi.
As death plays the trick they suddenly thought of dropping the abducted trader's wife on the road and escaping with their catch. This proved to be their nemesis. The trader's wife yelled for help.

The criminals were chased by the public and the Varanasi and Mau police closed in from both the sides. On the other hand Sanjay Singh was  gunned down by the Lucknow STF on June 16 this year.

So with all the names nearly obliterated there's nobody to tell as to who was the mastermind behind the shoot-out in which the BSP leader had named the SP MLA and her three brothers.

If the above five shooters were really involved in this incident at whose behest had they come to Jhusi to  commit the ghastly murders is the million dollar question doing rounds in the city?
