DREADED DACOIT Jagjeevan Parihar let loose a reign of terror in three villages in Etawah, native town of Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, on March 14 night. A dozen dacoits led by Parihar killed three persons and badly injured another. .
Next day, when Hanumantpura police post incharge Rakesh Kumar reached the spot, angry villagers thrashed him badly and snatched his AK-47 rifle. He was admitted to a private hospital in Etawah where his condition was stated to be critical.
According to information, Jagjeevan along with gang members attacked his native village Charaula and villages Lalupura and Mardanpur, all under Bithauli PS. Sources said the dacoits first entered Parihar’s native village Charaula. There they spotted Janmed Singh Parihar sitting besides ‘Holika dahan’. Eyewitnesses said Jagjeevan threw Janmed into the Holika. He was burnt alive.Later, they shot dead Karan Singh Parihar and Mahesh Jatav of Lalupura and Sarvanlal Pulwa. The dacoits badly injured one Guddu, a resident of Chauraula village.
The bloody drama lasted for half an hour. The dacoits also held captive 3 persons identified as Vaibhav Ranjan Dubey and Brijendra Singh of Charaula village, and the third one as Mauji Ram Pal of Mardanpur village.
Ironically, the Bithauli PS became the target of the villagers as all three villages attacked by the gang fell under it.
On Thursday SP Etawah Ashok Jain held a meeting with ADG RK Tiwari and the SP Bhind. Talking to HT, SP, Etawah said, “We have formed several police teams and they have been sent to several locations in Etawah and Bhind district in search of the victims and the dacoits.”
Sources in the police said it seemed the attack was made to settle score, as some police informers were active in the three villages.
