The BSP president said this while reviewing the election preparations with party office bearers and district presidents of UP and Uttarakhand here on Thursday.
A man in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr district allegedly got his father killed over a property share dispute.
According to the police, the 32-year-old accused, Narendra Singh, had hired a contract killer for Rs 2.5 lakhs to kill Bholi Singh (65).
Bulandshahr SSP Shlok Kumar said that the incident took place on the intervening night of June 22 and 23.
“After receiving information that a man had been shot at by some unidentified persons, a police team rushed to the spot and took the victim to a hospital where he was declared dead on arrival,” Kumar said.
“During the probe, it came to light that Narendra was upset with his father as he sold out a piece of land but did not give him any share. He then contacted a man from his village, identified as Lokesh Kumar, to hire a contract killer from Delhi, Abhishek Kumar.”
The SSP added that Narendra and Abhishek have been arrested, while Lokesh is absconding.
