Meanwhile, Bajrangi's family members alleged that he was killed under a "conspiracy" and demanded a CBI probe into his death. His younger brother Rajesh Singh alleged a "conspiracy" was hatched and the killing was planned in advance.
The mafia don was shot dead hours before he was to be produced in a court in a case of extorting money from a former BSP legislator, police had said yesterday.
Bajrangi was reportedly killed by Sunil Rathi, who is lodged in Baghpat jail since July 31 last year, officials said.
Speaking to media persons yesterday, he had said, "When extremely hardened criminals like Bajrangi are not safe inside heavily guarded and secure jails what is the guarantee that we (opposition leaders), against whom numerous SITs have initiated probe, are safe?"
He alleged the fear of law has disappeared in the state as the government is "extending patronage to those who eliminate minority community members".
