Ballia: The Uttar Pradesh Police has arrested the main accused a BJP leader and four others in the Ballia murder case, officials said on Sunday.

The incident had happened on Thursday during a meeting over the allotment of ration shops at Durjanpur village in Ballia”s Reoti area.

A local BJP leader, Dhirendra Pratap Singh, allegedly shot dead 46-year-old Jai Prakash Pal Gama.

The UP government had suspended the SDM, circle officer and other policemen present at spot.

According to officials, Dhirendra was arrested by the UP Special Task Force from Lucknow while Santosh Yadav, Amarjeet Yadav, Ajay Singh and Dharmendra Singh were held from Ballia.

As of now, police have arrested 10 people in connection with the case.

Dhirendra and others have been accused of shooting a man dead during a meeting for allotment of shops under government quota in Durjanpur village in Ballia.

Despite a video surfacing on social media where Dhirendra could be purportedly seen firing shots, Bariya BJP MLA Surendra Singh has been vehemently defending the accused saying he fired shots in self-defence and making controversial comments against the police investigation.
