Earlier, the investigation in the murder of two BJP leaders in Gujarat's Bharuch area had revealed the involvement of fugitive underworld don Chhota Shakeel.
It was also revealed that one of the accused was introduced to Shakeel by the mastermind of murder Javed Chikna.
The two BJP leaders — former party president of Bharuch district and senior RSS member Shirish Bangali and general secretary of Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha of Bharuch district Pragnesh Mistry — were shot dead by two unidentified gunmen in Bharuch on November 2.
"Primary investigations revealed that the murders were carried out citing injustice due to the incidents that happened from 1993 (Mumbai riots) to 2002 (Gujarat riots)," Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) chief J K Bhatt was quoted as saying by PTI.
It is also speculated that ISI may have funded the killings of the two BJP leaders.
"The 'supari' (contract) for killing two leaders was given by absconding (1993) Mumbai blasts accused Javed Chikna from South Africa. He had hired killers for Rs 50 lakhs to kill those Bharuch based leaders," Bhatt said adding that the shooters had so far received Rs 5 lakhs.
