Lucknow, June 17: Dr Kafeel Khan whose brother Kashif Jameel was shot at on June 10 while he was returning home near JP Hospital in Humayunpur North area attacked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs and accused them of shooting his brother. Khan alleged that BJP MP Kamlesh Paswan representing the Bansgaon Constituency and Satish Nagalia, owner of Baldev Plaza, hired shooters to kill his brother because of the enmity between his uncle and Paswan. He added,”My uncle has piece of land which Kamlesh and Satish encroached upon in Feb. FIR was lodged and they had sought stay order by HC on arrests.”
Khan also added that the UP Police had promised that culprits would be nabbed within 48 hours, but nothing had been done even though a week had passed.
He further said that given the circumstances, it is evident that UP Police has been acting on someone’s instructions. Their intention was clear, he added. They didn’t want to arrest the culprit it seems, he said.
As said earlier, Dr. Kafeel Khan’s brother Kashif Jameel was shot at when he was returning home on his bike near JP Hospital in Humayunpur north area. Kashif was hit by three bullets and was treated at a private hospital in Gorakhpur and was later referred to Lucknow’s KGMC Hospital. Khan had then too accused the police of delaying his brother’s surgery.
On the contrary, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Gorakhpur Shalabh Mathur said that there had been no foul play by the police and added that they had been referred to the BRD Mediacal College but Khan’s family had asked for the surgery at a private hospital.
Meanwhile, Congress president Rahul Gandhi too voiced his opinion on the matter and spoke about the denigration of law and order in the most populous state.
