MP: Ex-BSP leader murdered days after joining Congress, husband of BSP MLA demanding ministerial berth booked as suspect

According to the police, Devendra had previously voiced his security concerns to Cheif Minister, Kamal Nath who had assured him complete protection.

Former BSP leader, Devendra Chourasia was killed and his son injured on Friday after a group of people attacked them near Damoh in Madhya Pradesh.

Devendra Chourasia, a former BSP leader from Madhya Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region, had joined the Congress Party in the presence of CM Kamal Nath, three days before he was killed.

Madhya Pradesh police registered a case and arrested seven people including Govind Singh, the husband of Rama Bai, the sitting BSP MLA from Patharia seat in Damoh district in this connection. Rama Bai’s brother-in-law and two other relatives have also been named among the accused in the FIR lodged by the brother of the deceased, police confirmed.

Chourasia and his son Somesh were hit with iron rods and baseball bats allegedly by a group of people. While Devendra succumbed to his injuries, Somesh was critically injured.

Tensions gripped Damoh district post the murder due to which heavy police forces needed to be deployed in the area. Locals kept their shops shut.

Hata police station officer Dharmendra Singh said, “Congress leader Devendra Chourasia, his son Somesh, brother Mahesh, Ashok and nephew Animesh reached their bitumen plant at Dhori Kheda village on Friday. Devendra and his son were at the main gate while others had gone to open the office when half a dozen men armed with iron rods and baseball bats attacked them. By the time the family members came to their rescue, the accused had fled the spot.”

“An FIR has been lodged against Govind Singh (husband of BSP MLA from Pathariya constituency Ramabai), Chandu Singh (Govind’s brother), Golu Singh, Lokesh Singh, Indrapal Patel, Amjad and others for murder and other charges. All the accused are absconding,” he said.

As per police sources Govind Singh, the key accused and his brother were both sentenced to life imprisonment in connection with a triple murder and were out on bail for the last one year.

Rama Bai Ahirwar, the sitting BSP MLA from Pathariya constituency, was recently in news for demanding a ministerial berth from CM Kamal Nath. Ahirwar had stated that if she is not given a ministerial berth, Madhya Pradesh might see a ‘Karnataka like situation’.

Mahesh Chourasia, brother of the deceased, claimed that Chaurasia was killed due to political enmity. According to the police, Devendra had previously voiced his security concerns to Cheif Minister, Kamal Nath who had assured him complete protection.

Madhya Pradesh has been witness to a sudden surge in political murders in the state. Law and order concerns have been raised beginning with the brutal murder of an RSS worker from Ratlam followed by the murder of two BJP leaders back to back while another was attacked and robbed in the state.

Moreover, the political slugfest which brewed over the kidnapping and brutal murder of the two twin brother in broad daylight from Madhya Pradesh’s Chitrakoot had just thrown further light on the severe crisis the state is going through and the growing law and order issues in the state.
