Uttar Pradesh : Gangster Munna Bajrangi shot dead inside jail

Gangster Prem Prakash Singh alias Munna Bajrangi was shot dead inside Baghpat jail Monday morning, barely a week after his wife Seema Singh addressed a press conference in the Uttar Pradesh capital accusing the Special Task Force (STF) of hatching a conspiracy to murder her husband.

Bajrangi was shifted to Baghpat from Jhansi jail around 9:30 pm Sunday night for an appearance in a local court on Monday in an extortion case on. Initial reports indicate the involvement of Sunil Rathi gang behind the murder. Sources said that Bajrangi was shot at 5:30 am when the prisoners were being served tea.

Following the incident, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered the suspension of four prison officials — jailor, deputy jailor, head warder, warder. “Such an incident occurring inside jail premises is a serious matter. Will conduct an in-depth investigation and strict action to be taken against those responsible,” he told ANI. A judicial inquiry has been ordered in the case.
