No lapse by UP police in providing security to Bajrangi: DGP

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Lucknow: A day after Munna Bajrangi was shot dead allegedly by another gangster inside a jail in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh DGP O P Singh today said there was no lapse on part of the police force in providing security to the mafia don.

Talking to reporters here, he said adequate security was provided to Bajrangi while transferring him from Jhansi jail to Baghpat, and that the transit time between the two locations was nearly 12 hours.

"There was no laxity on part of the UP Police in providing security to Bajrangi," Singh said.

Mafia don Prem Prakash Singh, alias Munna Bajrangi, was shot dead, hours before he was to be produced in a local court in a case of extorting money from a former BSP legislator, police said.

The UP DGP said a judicial probe was on in the matter and the guilty would not be spared.  

Bajrangi was reportedly killed by Sunil Rathi, who is lodged in Baghpat jail since July 31 last year, officials said.  On media reports claiming that Rathi killed the mafia don for calling him 'chubby', Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said, "A number of versions have come out...Magisterial and judicial probe is on. It will come in the probe report".

Also commenting on a couple of photographs showing Bajrangi being shot on his head and then on his chest, the official said, "It has come to my notice. It will be included in the probe".
