RSS ‘worker’ killed his farm worker to faked own ‘murder’ for insurance sum: Police

Ratlam: Madhya Pradesh police Monday unfold the mystery behind the ‘murder’ of Himmat Patidar, who is believed to be a RSS worker from Ratlam district.

Addressing the news reporters in a press conference, Ratlam Superintendent of Police Gaurav Tiwari said that the 36-year-old had faked his own killing, apparently to claim the insurance money to the tune of Rs 20 lakh to repay the debt.

Patidar allegedly killed his 32-year-old farm labourer Madan Malviya to pass it off as his own ‘murder’, and burnt his face to conceal the identity with the aim to mislead the police during investigation.

Patidar is alive and is on the run and the cops have established the identity of the deceased Malviya through DNA test, a senior police officer said.

Notably, Malviya’s body, initially claimed to be that of Patidar, with the throat slit, was found in his field at Kamed village in Ratlam district on January 23.

Though Patidar used to attend RSS ‘shakhas’, he was not holding any post in the BJP’s parent organization while his brother Sanjay Patidar is said to be associated with the RSS. He is the district RSS music band chief, clarified the SP.

Police have announced a reward of Rs 10,000 for any information on whereabouts of Patidar, the SP added.

Further investigation into the matter is underway.
