Muzaffarnagar, Oct 28: The wife of slain gangster Vicky Tyagi has accused several police officials of murdering him, police said today.
The slain gangster's wife Meenu Tyagi in her statement yesterday alleged that Vicky was murdered in a conspiracy hashed by police officials who had threatened to kill him before the incident, Superintendent of Police CB-CID, J K Shahi said.
The CB-CID team, which is investigating the murder case recorded her statement, Shahi said. The team also recorded statements of eight other inmates, who were present in court at the time of Vicky's murder, the SP said.
History-sheeter Tyagi was shot dead during a court hearing on February 16, this year. The assailant, Sagar Malik, was arrested on the spot while another accused, Brijbir, was nabbed later.
Three police officials, namely Deputy SP (STF) Anuj Choudhry, SHO Sachin Malik and constable Vikas, too, had been named in the case.
The deceased was one of the accused in the 2011 Barkali case, in which eight people of a family were killed.
