Sanjay Singh's son demands fresh probe in Syed Modi murder case

Anant Vikram Singh, the son of senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha member Dr. Sanjay Singh, after joining Bharatiya Janta Party, demanded a fresh investigation into the murder case of ace badminton player Syed Modi.

While talking to media persons when his attention was drawn towards the high profile murder case, Anant sought a fresh probe in the case and, in an apparent reference to Syed Modi's family, said, "Woh pariwar bhi prateeksha kar raha hai ki unhe nyay mile. (That family is also waiting for justice)." Sanjay Singh's second wife Amita was earlier married to Modi. Both Amita and Sanjay were also accused in the Modi murder case but later acquitted and got married.

Thanking Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani after he joined the saffron pariwar in the presence of state BJP chief Laxmikant Bajpayi, Anant said he had not joined the BJP owing to his battle over the legal inheritance of Bhupati Bhawan in Amethi. Instead, he said, he wanted to do politics of development and serve people of his area.

Anant shot to limelight after he and his mother Garima Sinh entered into a dispute with Dr Sanjay Sinh and his wife Amita Singh over the family's royal assets in Amethi, particularly the Bhupati Bhawan. The dispute even resulted in death of two police constables. Even as the battle continues at legal level, Anant was reportedly asked to join BJP by Smriti Irani, who contested against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in Amethi in the Lok Sabha election.

On his differences with his father, Anant said his father was a national leader while he has come to serve the people of his region. "I won't go that high and he will not come down to this level", Anant said, hinting that he is eyeing Vidhan Sabha elections of 2017.
