NEW DELHI: THE CBI is facing problems in investigating the Balipur triple murder case in which Independent Kunda MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya and his aides were allegedly involved.
Most of the local staff including the drivers of SUVs and cars deployed in the service of the agency are not cooperating with them.
They seem to be under constant watch by the locals because someone is putting a spanner in the works ever so often.
This has been happening ever since the 10- member CBI team reached Kunda on Friday and looking for space to make their camp office.
While conducting a raid at the Kunda Nagar Panchayat office, they found over a thousand files related to illegal sand mining and other contractual works.
The next day when the CBI men asked for the key to the room of Nagar Panchayat chairman Gulshan Yadav, the entire staff slipped out.
The CBI men broke the lock and took possession of more papers. But then the power supply was disrupted when they started converting it into their camp office.
Saturday was worse - no power or water supply and the telephone connection was severed.
Gulshan Yadav has been absconding since March 2 after Kunda DSP Zia- ul- Haq, Mohaddinagar panchayat chief Nanhe Yadav and his younger brother Suresh were killed in the village.
The CBI is working on the possibility that Gulshan acted on someone's instruction to execute the Balipur plan.
According to a source, the CBI is also exploring the possibility of the involvement of the sand mafia in the DSP's murder. Gulshan was supposedly controlling it on behalf of his masters.
" We are more efficient than the CBI. Still the investigation has been handed over to them by CM Akhilesh Yadav. But he must know that Kunda is Raja Bhaiyya's fiefdom where Akhilesh's or CBI's orders will not be followed.
They will keep on facing problems," a suspended police officer said. Most of the local staff are not cooperating with the agency.
