Muzaffarnagar : The activists of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP ) demanded the CBI inquiry into the case of Akhil Gupta murder, who was a witness of rape case against Asaram. They also staged a demonstration here over the demands of CBI inquiry.

Hundreds of BJP workers led by vice-president of party unit here, Sarita Gore, took out a procession yesterday and submitted a memorandum to the city Magistrate demanding CBI inquiry into the case. They alleged that the local police have not arrested anyone in this connection yet.

Akhil Gupta was shot dead on January 11 this year, who was a cook and personal aide of Asaram, who has been in jail since August 2013, for allegedly sexually assaulting a school girl. The 35-year-old Gupta is the second witness to be killed in the case after Amrut Prajapati, who was a former Asaram aide, who was shot dead in June last year in Gujarat.

Gupta had reported given a statement against Asaram Bapu after he was questioned by the Gujarat Police in 2013. Along with his statement, Akhil Gupta is also reported to have given the police some implicating proof against Asaram Bapu in the Surat rape case.

Though Akhil Gupta's residence was in another locality, he had begun staying at a rented accommodation in Geeta Enclave keeping his security in mind.
