In a shocking news, a former BJP MLA Jayanti Bhanushali was shot dead on a train early on Tuesday in a train. He was travelling to Bhuj from Ahmedabad when unidentified attackers barged into his coach and shot him. The former leader died on the spot.
The unfortunate attack on the former legislator happened,
when the train had reached between the Kataria and Surjaabari stations in Gujarat. Jayanti Bhanushali represented Abdasa assembly constituency between 2007 and 2012.
The attackers shot him in the eye and chest. After the attack, the train was brought to the Kalupur station in Ahmedabad, where the coach was separated from the rest. The railway police and the personnel of the forensic science laboratory reached the spot. The police started their investigation since then. A police official told the media that,
“The railway police on board the Bhuj-Dadar Express informed the Morbi police that Bhanushali was shot dead in the train. When the train reached Maliya station of Morbi, we recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem. We also recovered some empty bullet cases from the compartment and sent them for forensic examination. The railway police will file an FIR in connection with the incident.”
To let you know, a case of rape had been registered against the former leader last year. After that, he was suspended from the BJP’s state vice-president position. He had denied the allegation, later the Gujarat High Court had cancelled the case in August 2018 after the woman withdrew the complaint mysteriously.
