The FIR was lodged by Monu Singh who was present with Sindhi in the court. Sahu, however, denied any link with the murder and alleged he was being dragged in the case for "political reasons". "I have no link with the matter.
I am being falsely implicated. The allegations against me are baseless," Sahu said, adding he has not been approached by the police.
"I was present in the court premises. I had gone to the office of the collector which is located near the court. My presence there had nothing to do with the case," he said.
Rampratap could not be contacted as he was in the cabinet meeting. Meanwhile, Sindhi's funeral was performed today. Some of his relatives held a demonstration demanding arrest of all the accused.
