Lucknow: Ashok Chandel, the BJP MLA from Uttar Pradesh’s Hamirpur district, was on Friday sentenced to life imprisonment after he was found guilty in a 22-year-old murder case.

He was sentenced by the Allahabad High Court for his involvement in the murder of five people on January 26, 1997.

A bench of Justice Ramesh Sinha and Justice D.K. Singh also sentenced 10 others to life imprisonment.

Rajiv Shukla, the victim’s family member, told IANS: “Three people from my family — elder brothers Rajesh Shukla and Rakesh Shukla and nephew Ganesh — were killed along with our security guards Ved Prakash Nayak and Shrikant Pandey.”

He said he approached the High Court after a lower court acquitted the accused.
