Bihar Elections: FIR registered against Tejashwi Yadav, Tej Pratap Yadav, Anil Sadhu, Kalo Paswan, Sunita Devi & Manoj Paswan on the basis of the deceased’s wife’s statement who alleged them in connection with the murder of former secretary (SC/ST cell) of the state unit of the Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) Shakti Mallik on Sunday. Mallik, 35, was shot dead on Sunday morning when in his home at Mugi Farm Road by unidentified assailants in Purnia district.
“At about 6 am on Sunday three masked men came and fired at my husband from close range. We rushed him to the Sadar hospital where doctors declared him dead. My husband was killed at the instigation of Tejaswi Yadav,” his wife said.
According to police, three unidentified armed criminals entered Malik’s room and shot him dead from close range. “He was shot thrice and he died on the spot,” a police official said.
The allegations could have been made because in recent weeks Malik had leveled serious allegations against RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav accusing him of demanding Rs 50 lakh to contest from Raniganj (SC) seat on a party ticket. Mallik joined the RJD in 2019 and was later made state secretary (SC/ST cell, Bihar).
However, RJD considered these allegations as a political move before the assembly polls of Bihar elections. RJD state spokesperson, Mritunjay Tiwary said the charges against Tejashwi and Tej Pratap were baseless and false. “The FIR is politically motivated, Police will probe the matter and the truth will come out. RJD leaders never play such a dirty game in politics,” said RJD senior leader in Purnia, Kamal Kishor Yadav.”
