Gwalior: The Gwalior bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court has directed the state police to produce a challan within 90 days after ensuring arrest of all accused mentioned in the FIR related to murder of Bhikam Singh Kushwaha at Bela village near here on June 23.
Madhya Pradesh Health Minister, Anoop Mishra, who is nephew of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, had to resign last month as his name figured in the case since his son Ashwini, brothers Ajay and Abhay, brother in-law Yogesh and cousins Deepak Vajpayee were named in the FIR filed in connection with Kushwaha`s murder.
Within 24 hours after Kushwaha`s murder, the police had filed an FIR against them but later arrested one Lalla Dubey and others instead of Mishra`s family members and
Following this, the deceased`s brother, Makhan Singh Kushwaha challenged the police action after filing a petition in the High Court.
While hearing his petition, the High Court issued the order on July 30 for arresting those persons named in the FIR.
Later, the court also dismissed the petition and said that if action was not taken in stipulated time, the petitioner can file a fresh appeal in this regard.
The accused are believed to have killed Bhikam Singh Kushwaha, with whom they had a dispute over a piece of land in Bela village in Gwalior district of Madhya Pradesh for
extending Mishra`s college.
