An FIR has been registered against Anant Vikram Singh, son of Congress MP Sanjay Sinh, for criminal conspiracy and against others for murder in connection with the killing of a constable in Amethi on Sunday.
Constable Vijay Mishra, 45, was killed and six persons injured in a clash between police and Anant Vikram’s supporters, who had gathered outside Sanjay Sinh’s ancestral house to prevent his (Sanjay’s) entry.
In a press conference in Amethi Monday, Sinh blamed his ex-wife Garima for “instigating and misusing the public of Ramnagar for personal gains”.
“I have not known Garima Singh for the past 25 years. There has been a conspiracy to prevent me and Ameeta (his second wife) from entering our own house. The locks have been broken and my house has been trespassed. Section 144 of CrPC was in place but the locals of Ramnagar were motivated for personal gains,” said Sanjay Sinh. “Anant had been living with us for past 20 years and had no problem. My marriage with Ameeta was with the consent of the entire family, including my children,” he added.
Sinh expressed grief over the constable’s death and said “the incident was the result of Anant’s immaturity”.
Meanwhile, Anant and Garima demanded that the Syed Modi murder case be reopened by the CBI.
Modi, husband of Sanjay Sinh’s second wife Ameeta Sinh, was shot in Lucknow in 1988. The case was closed by the CBI in 2009 as the motive could not be established.
Garima said, “It is sad that people are giving it the name of a property dispute, when actually this is the fight for my rights.”
Anant said: “Not only me and my mother but also Syed Modi’s brother has demanded re-opening of the murder case.”
