Former DSP sentenced to life imprisonment in Raja Maan Singh’s murder dies in Jaipur | Jaipur News


AGRA: The 82-year-old former DSP of Rajasthan Police, Kan Singh Bhati, who was recently sentenced to life imprisonment along with 10 other former policemen, for the murder of the royal scion of Bharatpur, Raja Man Singh, in a staged “encounter” 35 years ago, died in a Jaipur hospital on Friday night.
Confirming this, Mathura district jail senior superintendent Shailendra Maitrey, told TOI that the convict was referred to district hospital Mathura on September 8 after he complained of gastrointestinal problem and later he was referred to SN Medical College Agra from where he was referred to Sawai Man Singh (SMS) hospital in Jaipur where he died on Friday night.
Maitrey said that his Covid test was conducted before he was referred to district hospital and it was found to be “negative”. His body will be given to his family members after post mortem in Jaipur, he added. Sources said that blood clots were found in the MRI conducted at SMS hospital.
Bhati was taken to district jail in Mathura after the verdict of life imprisonment was announced by District and sessions judge Sadhna Rani on July 22.
The judge held the policemen — including then DSP Kan Singh Bhati and SHO Veerendra Singh — guilty under sections 302 (murder) and 148 (rioting) of the IPC. Three others — Hari Kishan, Kan Singh Sirvi and Govind Ram — booked under Section 218 of the IPC (public servant framing incorrect record or writing with intent to save a person from punishment) were acquitted.
