Midnapore: Midnapore Police wants to investigate another Telugu mafia Basab Rambabu and Kasi Rao in Srinu Murder Case. Midnapore Cops also filled PIl in court on Monday for seeking them into their custody. According to police, Rambabu and Kasi Rao may involve in Srinu murder case.
West Midnapore SP Bharati Ghosh said earlier that some influential people and some old underworld enemies were behind the killing of dreaded Kharagpur don Srinu Naidu and his associate Dharma Rao.
Seven persons involved in the case have been arrested and cops are on the hunt for four others. Ghosh said, “I will reveal more details soon. For the past one and a half years, Naidu wasn’t involved with mafia.
He was trying to reform himself and was focusing more on business. People who murdered him felt that he would become an influential leader in future.”
Ghosh explained that supari killers were brought from Jamshedpur to kill Srinu. The conspirators held several meetings before eliminating their target and the first meeting was held in Jamshedpur. “The last one was held on January 8 at the house of Srinu’s old underworld rival John Francis, near Kharagpur railway station,” added the SP.
She revealed names of four people involved in the killing, including Sankar Rao, who gave orders over phone from Shalimar. Rao was picked up from the Odisha border. Incidentally, Srinu was arrested on April 9, 2015 for his alleged involvement in the attack on Rao during the Kharagpur civic poll campaign. Srinu’s wife Pooja was the elected councillor of Ward 18 on a BJP ticket.
Three other accused named in the case are-Nanda Das, Rajesh Sahu and Barun Ghosh. Das, who had paid for buying a second-hand Tata Sumo which was used in the operation, was arrested from Jhargram.
On the other hand, West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh wrote a letter to the Centre demanding a CBI inquiry into the killing of Srinu Naidu, husband of a TMC councillor, in Kharagpur.
