Sanjeev Jeeva murder case: In the latest development in the Sanjeev Jeeva murder case, gangster Sunil Rathi was interrogated in the Haridwar Jail. Gangster-politician Mukhtar Ansari's aide Sanjeev Maheshwari Jeeva was shot dead on the premises of a Lucknow court on Wednesday. According to sources, police questioned him over providing arms and ammunition to Vijay to kill Sanjeev Jeeva. In 2018, Rathi had got Munna Bajrangi, a close friend of Mukhtar Ansari killed inside the jail. 

Reports said, Vijay was in Mumbai, when he was called to Jaunpur and was given the contract to kill Jeeva. Then he went to Bahraich from Jaunpur. It is said that he was provided with a Czech-made revolver in Bahraich itself by Sunil Rathi gang, sources said.

Meanwhile, UP Police also recreated the scene of the murder in the court where Vijay Yadav had fired shots at Sanjeev Jeeva. Police will also present Vijay Yadav in court to seek his remand.

The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday set up an SIT set up in the sensational Sanjeev Jeeva murder case will probe into possible security lapses at the court premises where the shoot-out took place. The SIT will focus on finding out if the metal detectors used by the security were working, and if they were, then how the accused managed to enter the court carrying a pistol, a senior police officer said.
