MP: Court acquits BJP leader in murder case
Harda: In a setback to the CBI, former
Madhya Pradesh minister and senior BJP leader Kamal Patel was
on Wednesday acquitted in the Durgesh Jat murder case.
While acquitting Patel, Additional Session Judge R C
Solanki however ruled that the trial against remaining nine
accused would go on.
Patel`s lawyer, advocate R K Yadav, said the BJP leader
was acquitted of all the charges.
Durgesh was killed following a shoot-out at a farm house

Patel told reporters afterwards that he had full faith in
the judiciary, and "justice has been done".
The case had been handed over to the CBI on the order of
Madhya Pradesh High Court, following a petition filed by
