Uttar Pradesh: Nephew, cousin arrested for Agra lawyer’s homicide | Agra Information – Occasions of India

AGRA: The police in Agra on Saturday arrested two suspects in connection with the murder of a lawyer, Ram Bahadur Mudgal, earlier this week. An FIR was registered against 11 people, including his nephew and cousin. All were named by the deceased’s family members.
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) of Agra, Sudhir Kumar Singh, said Shivanshu Mudgal, (the nephew of the deceased) and Tarkeshwar Mudgal (cousin of the deceased) were arrested by the police for killing Ram Bahadur.
“Shivanshu has confessed to committing the crime. The pistol that was used for the murder has also been recovered,” the SSP said, adding that the suspect told the police that Ram Bahadur had illegally taken possession of six-seven shops that were registered under his name.
During interrogation, Shivanshu said that Tarkeshwar had also been duped by the deceased in a similar fashion, which is why he accompanied him to commit the crime.
The kin of the deceased alleged that they had informed the police about this dispute, but the police failed to take the matter seriously, resulting in the death of Ram Bahadur. There was a long-standing dispute over the properties.
The FIR was lodged by the police under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 506 (criminal intimidation) along with some other sections of the IPC at the Shahganj police station on November 3 on the basis of a complaint filed by the deceased’s son, Mahan Mudgal, who is a lawyer.
The complainant stated that his father was sitting near a dhaba when four bike-borne men came and opened fire at him. “My father immediately collapsed and when my brother and I tried to catch the shooter, they opened fire with an intention to kill us. However, we were not hurt,” the FIR reads, adding that his father was threatened by one Rajeev on the phone who said that he would kill him and his family almost two hours before the incident.
