BJP’s Barrackpore MP Arjun Singh on Saturday alleged that the West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is “plotting” to frame him within the Manish Shukla murder case.
BJP councillor Manish Shukla, who was a detailed aide of Singh, was shot lifeless in Titagarh on October 4.
“I got hold of a chat of senior CID officers where they were discussing whether Arjun Singh has been framed.
Going by this conversation, I am sure they (CID officers) are conspiring to frame me in the case,” Singh stated.
The BJP lawmaker accused the CID of not nabbing the “culprits” who’re “roaming freely” within the space.
Senior Trinamool Congress chief Nirmal Ghosh dismissed Singh’s claims and stated the investigation company is doing its finest and Shukla’s murderers and the conspirators behind the killing will quickly be behind the bars.
“We have better things to do rather than reacting to what Arjun Singh is saying. He is a ‘bahubali’ (strongman) in the area. The CID is on the right track. Soon, people behind this murder will be brought to the book,” Ghosh stated.
CID sleuths are planning to go to Bihar’s Nalanda looking for different folks concerned in Shukla’s murder, sources stated.
The company has arrested three individuals to date in reference to the killing.
