Businessman Indrakant had made the video viral even before the deadly attack and said that his life is in danger and if anything happens to him, only Superintendent of Police of Mahoba Lalmani Patidar will be responsible. He was constantly receiving threats to kill him. Indrakant accused the then SP of Mahoba, Lalmani Patidar, that he was demanding a bribe of six lakh rupees a month to run the crusher.
He also said in the viral video that he had to pay six lakh rupees. After this, when he refused to give the amount due to losses, he was attacked with a fatal attack. The SIT will investigate whether Mahoba’s SP played a role in Mahoba’s attack on Indrakant or some other reason.
