Statesman News Service | Meerut |

In a sensational incident Congress Sevadal women wing’s city president Munni Begum was killed by three unidentified criminals in Bagpat district on Monday but interestingly the top cop of the district denies that the deceased was in Congress Sevadal.

A case, however, has been registered naming jailed criminal Zahid alias Lamboo, his wife Shahnaz and three unidentified criminals in Bagpat Kotwali.

According to sources, Lamboo had a rivalry with the deceased as he believed that she was behind his arrest and hence he wanted to settle score with her.

The incident was reported on Monday night in the house of Munni. Three unidentified criminals entered the house and shot her dead. Munni collapsed having sustained injuries due to four bullets which pierced her body.

The panicked family members and her husband tried to catch the assailants but they ran away opening fire on them as well.

The family members rushed her to hospital where after examination she was declared dead. The grieving family members informed the police suspecting hands of criminal Lamboo in this murder.

ASP Baghat Ajay Kumar Singh said that Lamboo who is currently in jail had rivalry with Munni as he suspected her hands behind his arrest in June last year. Lamboo is a hard core criminal booked in over three dozen heinous cases and also had a reward of Rs 12,000 on his head.

The murder of the Congress Sevadal has left the party in a state of shock in the district. Surprisingly SP of Bagpat Jayprakash said that Munni was not a leader of Congress and she just once had contested councillor’s election on ticket of Congress but according to ASP Ajay Kumar Singh she was very much associated with the Congress Sevadal.

Congress Sevadal’s State organiser Anil Dev Tyagi also confirmed Munni’s association with Sevadal. “Only organisation could authenticate association of any person with it”, he quipped Tyagi adding that she was city president of Sevadal’s women wing for the past many years.

The Congressmen in Baghpat believe that perhaps the police is giving this statement so that the incident does not get a political hype. “We only want prompt action and immediate arrest of the assialants,” said Tyagi adding that a delegation of Sevadal will meet the SP in this regard.

Taking on the police department, Tyagi said that Munni had a narrow escape twice in the past also. Once some criminals fired on her but she survived the attack and almost a year before her house was set on fire. She has been demanding security but officials paid no heed to her demand.
