MLA kills engineer.
AURAIYA: MK Gupta, the state government employee who was murdered, allegedly by a Bahujan Samaj Party MLA and his associates in Auraiya near Etawah in southwestern Uttar Pradesh, was subjected to electric shocks and brutally beaten up, causing a brain haemorrhage that proved fatal, his autopsy has revealed.
Gupta, an executive engineer in the public works department, was beaten to death, allegedly by local BSP legislator Shekhar Tiwari and his accomplices, after he supposedly refused to cough up a “huge sum” for the birthday celebration of Mayawati.She denied the charge and also rejected the opposition’s demand for a probe by the CBI.
“The executive engineer had 32 injuries on his body, including head injuries leading to brain haemorrhage and a fracture in his hand,” said Auraiya chief medical officer Dr Karan Singh, who led the panel of doctors that conducted the post-mortem.
He said the 48-year-old was beaten up badly and there were “signs of electric shocks being given to him by the assailants”.
