Jamshedpur : As the police made efforts to nab gangster Akhilesh Singh, the main accused in JMM leader Upendra Singh murder case, the gangster’s mother Sumitra Devi on Monday made an abortive bid to meet the deputy commissioner and senior superintendent of police protesting the alleged harassment being meted to the family by the police.
Sumitra and about 15 women accompanied her to approach the SSP office as it is a matter related to police investigation.
Sumitra, who is wife of Chandragupt Singh, former secretary of Jharkhand Police Association, protested at the SSP in front of her office along with the women who had come with her to lodge the protest. Later, the 65-year-old Sumitra distributed copies of a memorandum among the media person present there and went back home.
In the memorandum, addressed to the deputy commissioner, Singh had mentioned that in the year 2002 when Akhilesh had murdered the jailer Uma Shankar Pandey, Chandragupt Singh and other members of the family had cut all relations. But despite keeping no relation with the gangster since the 2002, the police have attached the properties of her husband Chandragupta Singh.
” We have disowned our son but the police have attached our properties, the police executed the kurki-jabti by entering into the house without any lady official or lady constable,” Singh has stated in the memorandum.
Notably, on Friday the police attached the properties of Chandragupta Singh’s residence at Sidhgora on the basis of a `kurki-jabti’ warrant issued from the court of sub-divisional judicial magistrate, Ashok Kumar in connection with a case registered under Section Arms Act and Extortion against Akhilesh Singh.
Akhilesh is officially out of the city as he is tadipaar (banished) for six months since November 22.
The police are yet to nab the gangster. They are still continuing interrogating the businessmen and builders who work in close association of Akhilesh.
Superintendent of police (city) Prashant Anand said that they are making every attempts to nab the gangster.
” We are working in right direction and will definitely succeed. But we are now concentrating on finding out the support-base from the businessmen and realtors group,” said Anand.
