After the news of Shambhu Regar, the man who murdered a Muslim man in Rajasthan’s Udaipur last year possibly contesting elections in 2019 wasn’t surprising enough, here is another one now.
Rupendra Rana, one of the accused who murdered Mohammed Akhlaq in Dadri in 2015 over suspicion of eating beef will be contesting the general election next year on Uttar Pradesh’s Navnirman Sena ticket.
The controversial outfit has decided to field Vikas Kumar, a Haryanvi singer from Mathura. Kumar had recently sent a legal notice of Rs 7 crore to the makers of “Veerey Ki Wedding” for allegedly using his song without his permission. The same party had announced a ticket from Agra to Shambhulal Regar.
