Chhatarpur (Madhya Pradesh): The police have named six persons in the First Information Report (FIR) in connection with murder of Indra Pratap Singh Parmar, Congress Ghuwara block president who died in hospital after he was shot at by unidentified people in Malhara of Chhatarpur on Tuesday.

Indra Pratap Singh was shot dead by unidentified people on Tuesday evening in Chhtarpur district.

The motive behind the murder would be investigated, said the SP, adding that political rivalry or dispute over property cannot be ruled out.

As soon as the news of Congress leader's murder spread, the party workers gathered at the hospital in great number and created a ruckus demanding arrest of the accused. Local Congress leader Ram Siya Lodhi, who contested from Bada Malhera, also reached hospital along with other party workers. The Congress leaders slammed the government for the deteriorating law and order in the state.

Former chief minister Kamal Nath in a tweet stated that the murder of the Congress leader shows the law and order situation in the state. Those responsible for the law and order in Madhya Pradesh are making big claims in poll-bound West Bengal, while here in state no one is safe, the cases of rape, murder and kidnapping are on the rise in the state, the PCC chief tweeted.
