Sharpshooter Mohammad Kaif, wanted in the murder of Rajdeo Ranjan, has broken his silence and has denied his involvement in the murder.
Kaif, who was recently spotted in photographs with former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin and RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s son Tej Pratap Yadav, has been absconding in connection with the killing of a journalist of a Hindi vernacular on May 9 this year.
Kaif said, “I am a cricketer, I train boys. This accusation (murder of Rajdev Ranjan) is false. I’m an only child. Would any parent make their only son criminal? Tejashwi Yadav is my youth icon, I wanted to come into politics.”
“I went as a supporter, I had even asked my lawyer for advice before I went there. I will speak to my lawyer & proceed accordingly. Siwan public, journalists know that I am not a criminal,” he added.
