Dreaded gangster Munna Bajrangi killed inside Bhagpat jail

Lucknow: Dreaded gangster Munna Bajrangi was shot dead inside the Baghpat jail on Monday morning.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered suspension of four prison officials, including the jailor and deputy jailor

According to a police official, Bajrangi was to be produced in court this later in the morning.

Sources said that Bajrangi was killed at around 6 am by an inmate Sunil Rathi who is said to be from a rival gang.

The 51-year-old criminal was shot ten times and then his body was dumped into a gutter inside the prison premises.

Bajrangi was transferred to Baghpat jail from Jhansi on Sunday as he was to be produced in court in connection with the murder case of a BJP lawmaker.

Immediately after the incident, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered suspension of four prison officials, including the jailor and the deputy jailor.

A judicial probe has also been ordered by the chief minister.

It may be recalled that a few days back, Bajrangi’s wife had told the police that a conspiracy was being hatched to eliminate her husband.
