BHARAT­PUR: SINGH AL­LEGED THAT THE AC­CUSED HAD BEEN DE­MAND­ING ₹15 LAKH EVER SINCE HE GOT A CON­TRACT FOR LAY­ING DRINK­ING WATER PIPE­LINE

A man thrashed a BJP cor­po­ra­tor on the Bharat­pur-Deeg state high­way on Tues­day evening, and later posted a video of the at­tack on his Face­book time­line.

Po­lice rushed to the spot af­ter be­ing in­formed but the man had fled by then.

The cor­po­ra­tor was rushed to the hos­pi­tal. Po­lice have reg­is­tered a case against the man who is still on the run.

BJP cor­po­ra­tor Govind Singh al­leged that Kuldeep Jaghina had been de­mand­ing ₹15 lakh from him ever since he (Singh) got the con­tract for lay­ing drink­ing water pipe­line from Bharat­pur to Deeg.

“Jaghina ear­lier de­manded 50% part­ner­ship in the con­tract and when I re­fused, he de­manded ₹15 lakh. I re­ported this to the po­lice on Novem­ber 3 last year, but no ac­tion was taken,” he said.

Kuldeep Jaghina’s Face­book post, in Hindi, reads: ‘Govind Singh lodged a false re­port of ex­tor­tion… when a charge is made against you, it’s bet­ter to com­mit that crime… left him alive be­cause he’s mar­ried… what will hap­pen to his wife and kids… be care­ful, you will not get an­other chance’.

In the video, Kuldeep Jaghina is heard ask­ing if Govind will give him the money he asked and why Singh had reg­is­tered a false re­port.

Govind Singh has writ­ten to the chief min­is­ter and home min­is­ter to seek ac­tion against the ac­cused.

Po­lice said Kuldeep Jaghina is named in a mur­der case and is ab­scond­ing for a long time.

Bharat­pur su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice, Anil Ku­mar Tank said that teams led by ad­di­tional su­per­in­ten­dent of po­lice, Dhar­men­dra Singh, has been formed to ar­rest Jaghina.
