Read Time:1 Minute, 57 Second

Amravati Police Commissioner Arti Singh on Monday claimed that Member of Parliament Navneet Rana was making false allegations against her as an attempt to murder case was registered against Rana’s husband, MLA Ravi Rana, and workers of their party Yuva Swabhiman Party (YSP) by Amravati Police earlier this year.
Singh made the comments while addressing a press conference on the murder of Umesh Kolhe, the chemist from Amravati who was murdered on June 21, allegedly over a social media post in support of suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma. Police have arrested seven persons in connection with the murder.
The case was transferred to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday
Singh said it took Amravati Police some time to crack the murder case because it was a “blind case”.
On June 27, Navneet Rana had written to Union Home Minister Amit Shah against Arti Singh, alleging that cases of murder, riots, illegal activities and robbery were increasing day by day in Amravati city. Rana further alleged that police were trying to pass off the Umesh Kolhe murder case as a case of robbery and murder.
Singh, meanwhile, was referring to an incident in February this year, when YSP workers had thrown ink on Amravati Municipal Commissioner Pravin Ashtikar, following which an attempt to murder case was registered against them as well as party leader and MLA Ravi Rana.
During the press conference, Singh said Navneet Rana has been targeting her with false allegations since the case was filed against her husband.
Responding to a question on the letter sent by Rana, Singh said, “All these allegations are being made after an FIR was registered on charge of attempt to murder in February. Crimes in Amravati have not increased and robbery sections were never applied in the case. If we wanted to cover up the case, we could have arrested two persons and closed it but we wanted to be sure before making any statements to ensure it does not send shock waves throughout the country. Unlike the Udaipur murder, in this case, there was no confession by the accused. Also, we did not get any incriminating evidence from the phones of the first few accused in the case. Further, the victim did not get any threat calls or messages.”
