Supreme Court relied on a CBI report and closed inquiry into photographs that showed former Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav with one of the accused of murdering journalist Rajdeo Ranjan.
A petition in this regard had been filed by slain jouno’s wife Asha Ranjan.
The top court had in November last year directed the CBI to probe the photographs.
The journo had been murdered in Siwan of Bihar.
It is said that the accused Mohd. Kaif was absconding in the Ranjan murder case when the photographs surfaced in the media.
Kaif is also said to have links with the Siwan strongman and jailed RJD leader Mohd. Shahabuddin.
Rajdeo Ranjan was murdered in Siwan in May 2016.
