Aligarh: A CBI probe was on Friday sought into the recent murder of corporator and senior BSP leader Balwant Singh Billu.



The All India Khatik Mahasangh has demanded the probe into Billu`s murder, alleging that the killing was the fallout of a "political conspiracy" to eliminate him from the race of Mayor`s election in the city.

Activists of the Mahasangh, led by its national president Tikam Singh Suryavanshi and Chitra Devi, widow of the slain leader, today submitted a memorandum addressed to
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, to the district authorities.



Billu`s body was recovered from a field near village Sumera under Police Station Jawan on June 11.



The 43-year-old BSP leader had been missing from the evening of June 10 when he had gone to visit two persons at a restaurant in the city`s posh residential and shopping area.

Four persons have been arrested and sent to jail in this connection.



A new twist was added to the case on Wednesday when the four arrested told police that Billu was killed "since he was a part of a sex racket involving some influential people."



The latest confessions of the accused will be looked into, SSP Satendra Veer Singh said.
