Murder charges slapped on SP MLA, 15 more

Nandi, Vijay Pratap, minis'er's gunner Sanjay Singh, sanitation employee Shyam Babu, minis'er's PRO Anuj Pandey and Pritam Singh and a BSP worker Rakesh Malviya were injured in the attack. Malviya died the same day.

Vijay Pratap succumbed to injuries in Army Research and Referral Hospital in Delhi nine days after the attack.

The prosecution has maintained that an old enmity between Nandi, who was then the institutional finance minister in the Mayawati government, and Vijay and Dilip Mishra had led to the incident.
