New Delhi, April 23
The Delhi police today sent notices to four MPs named by a prime accused of the case Sunder Lal Yadav.

The crime branch of the Delhi police sent notices to three BSP MPs from Uttar Pradesh — Mitrasen Yadav (Faizabad), Ashok Rawat (Misrik) and Mohammad Tahir Khan (Sultanpur) — and Ramswaroop Koli of the BJP, who represents Bayana in Rajasthan.

“Notices have been sent to the MPs following the allegations made by Yadav,” a senior police officer said.

Yadav, a travel agent arrested on Saturday along with Rajendra Kumar and their female accomplice Kiran Dhar, revealed in a city court that Kiran and Koli were the central figures in the racket of smuggling people abroad on forged documents. Yadav also named Mitrasen Yadav and Rawat for their involvement in the racket.

“We have asked them to join the investigation process and they will be asked about their alleged involvement in the case. We are also conducting investigations in different parts of the country to apprehend travel agents and other persons involved in the racket. The assistance of other ministries and departments is also being taken. Over 25 passports belonging to different individuals have been recovered from Rajendra,” the officer said.

Meanwhile, a city court sent Paramjeet Kaur to Tihar Jail till May 4. Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Kamini Lau remanded her in judicial custody, dismissing Delhi police’s plea to extend her police remand.

The police said she needed to be interrogated further for clues on whereabouts of the two travel agents Joginder Singh and Santu Masih in Punjab, who had struck the deal to send her to Toronto along with the Gujarat MP, were yet to be arrested.
