Along with Raja Bhaiya, who won the assembly election yet again from Kunda in Pratapgarh, a case has also been registered against his cousin and Member of Legislative Council (MLC) Akshay Pratap Singh and five others.
Yogendra Yadav, 19, the key witness in the 2013 killing of Circle Officer (CO) Mr Haq, died in a road accident late on Friday night in Arkha village of Unchahaar.
The witness's uncle Sudhir Yadav has alleged that Yogendra alias Babloo was mowed down deliberately, under a conspiracy hatched by Raja Bhaiya and his associates to finish off evidence in the Zia-ul-Haq case.
According to Circle Officer (CO) Dalmau SP Upadhya, a case has been lodged and probe was underway following Sudhir Yadav's complaint.
The incident had hit national headlines and caused a lot of embarrassment to the Akhilesh Yadav government.
A Central Bureau of Investigation probe, after initial reluctance by the Samajwadi Party (SP) government, had later been ordered.
