Bhopal, Jan 28 : During investigations, Madhya Pradesh Police concluded that RSS worker Himmat Patidar from Ratlam district had faked his own killing, apparently to claim the insurance money of Rs 20 lakh to repay the debt.
In order to mislead the police, Patidar allegedly killed his farm labourer Madan Malviya (32) to pass it off as his own ‘murder’ and burnt his face to conceal the identity.
Police have established the identity of the deceased Malviya through DNA test, Ratlam Superintendent of Police Gaurav Tiwari told reporters in a press conference. Patidar is alive and is on the run, a senior police officer said.
Taking a swipe at the opposition BJP, Madhya Pradesh Home minister Bala Bachchan said, “BJP is unable to digest the regime change in MP. Himmat Patidar (RSS worker) turned out to be the killer in Ratlam incident, whether its Ratlam or Mandsaur it’s the BJP that’s taking law in its hands.”
Home Minister Bala Bachchan said, “Former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should visit the house of the Dalit man who has been allegedly killed by Patidar, one of their (BJP’s) own men, and console his family members. Why he (Chouhan) has not tweeted yet?”
