One of the key witness, Chamail Singh was found dead in the murder case of the former Haryana village sarpanch Karam Singh. There were widespread allegations by Singh's family members on the state Transport Minister Om Parkash Jain and a chief Parliamentary secretary Zile Ram Sharma's involvement in the death.
The victim had reportedly paid a bribe to Zile Ram Sharma to secure a job for his son. The very next day the sarpanch demanded the return of the bribe he was found dead. The family had suspected foul play and now with the witness also being found dead, the issue raising a lot of eyebrows.
Last week saw the resignation of former Haryana Transport and Tourism Minister OP Jain and Sharma following investigations into the case.
Rajinder Singh, the son of Karam Singh had further accused both Jain and Sahrma by saying that they had cheated his father of nearly Rs 13 lakh for providing government jobs to him and his two other cousins. Rajinder also claimed that they were facing threats for their submission on his father's death and the government was showing no interest in taking the matter seriously.
