Deepak Bharadwaj
New Delhi, March 28: The police have detained 3 men in connection with the murder of Deepak Bhardwaj, leader of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). They are believed to be contract killers. A Skoda car which was used has been recovered. The assailants used the car to travel to Bharadwaj's farmhouse.

Police on Tuesday released a CCTV footage which shows how two assailants, who entered into the farmhouse in Rajokri at 8:55 am on the pretext of booking the place for a marriage, guned down the BSP leader. Bhardwaj later succumbed to his injuries.

The cops also questioned the family members of Bhardwaj to find out whether "property dispute" led to BSP leader's murder. A senior police official told media persons that police spoke to Bhardwaj's wife and sons. Apparently, the wife was staying separately from her husband.

Police sources say probe team questioned family members to ascertain whether there was a property dispute and if he had any "enemies". Bharadwaj was the richest candidate in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls with declared assets of over Rs 600 crore.
