Muzaffarnagar: The CB-CID, which is probing the Vicky Tyagi murder case, has given clean chit to one of the 11 accused citing lack of evidence against him.
The investigation agency on Wednesday filed a report under section 169 of the CrPC saying that there is no evidence against Brijbir Singh in connection with the case.
Tyagi, a gangster, was gunned down by a shooter during a court hearing in another case in February in 2015.
An alleged shooter Sagar was arrested from the spot while Brijbir was nabbed the next day.
Police had registered a case against 11 people, including four police officials.
The Uttar Pradesh government had handed the investigation into the murder case from local police to CB-CID in November 2016.
