Bhim Tank murder accused Shiv Lal Doda files nomination as independent candidate

Liquor baron Shiv Lal Doda, the prime accused in the Abohar farmhouse murder case involving a Dalit youth Bhim Tank, has filed his nomination papers for contesting elections from the Abohar assembly seat. Doda had reportedly got permission from the court before jumping into the poll fray. Interestingly, his nephew Amit Doda, who is the co-accused in Bhim Tank murder case, has also filed his nomination papers, apparently as Shiv Lal's cover candidate. Liquor contractor Doda, who is lodged in Fazilka jail at present, was allowed bail for a day to file his nomination papers.
