Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria today assured the arrest of the culprits in the Churu murder case within two months. When BSP MLA Manoj Kumar raised the issue during the Zero Hour, Kataria said the victim, identified as Man Singh, was murdered on March 11 in Rajgarh area of Churu. The accused Mahesh who had taken Man Singh along with him on a motorcycle is absconding and will be arrested soon. Kumar said the minor daughter of Singh was allegedly gangraped in 2015 and one of the main accused, Vikas Jat, had got his name removed from the FIR. Jat was pressurising the girl's father to withdraw the case and when he refused, he got him murdered, Kataria said. The minister said he was seized of the facts and will get the matter investigated impartially.
All the accused in both the cases of gangrape and murder will be arrested in next two months, he added. During the Zero Hour, Independent MLA Hanuman Beniwal referring to a decision by a committee headed by chief secretary to transfer pasture lands for mining purpose demanded from the government to withdraw the decision. Stating that lack of fodder leads to death of cattle he claimed the government was not serious for this and was instead planning to hand over the pasture lands for mining purpose. He also raised the issue of deaths of cows in Hingaunia gaushala (last year) and demanded from the government to not go ahead with the decision.
