The kidnapping and murder of twins of a businessman from Madhya Pradesh’s Chitrakoot have led to the political parties trading barbs at each other. While the Congress blamed the Opposition, the BJP said that the ruling state government should have taken the matter seriously.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath said that he was angry and sad on knowing about the deaths of the twin sons of Chitrakoot businessman Brijesh Rawat. Speaking to news agency ANI, the chief minister said, “I have to the victims’ father and the politics behind it will also be exposed. Police are looking into the matter. The vehicle in which the children were abducted had a flag. Whose flag was it? The Opposition is scared because their people are involved.”

On the other hand, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan also took at the ruling Congress government and said, “I pay my homage to the two children. It was an unfortunate incident. We had hoped that the government and administration would take the matter seriously and rescue the children. This incident shook me,” as quoted by ANI.

The six-year-old twin sons of a businessman kidnapped at gunpoint in Madhya Pradesh’s Satna district were found dead in the Yamuna river near Uttar Pradesh’s Baberu village in the Banda district late on Saturday night.

The children, both in kindergarten and sons of oil merchant Brijesh Rawat, were kidnapped at gunpoint by two masked persons from Chitrakoot when they were returning home in their school bus on February 12.

The kidnappers had later demanded a ransom from the children’s father, Chitrakoot’s Nayagaon police station in-charge K P Tripathi said.
