Murder accused Ram Kumar Chaudhary takes oath as Himachal legislator

  • Shimla¬† :¬† Congress legislator Ram Kumar Chaudhary, who faces murder charges, Thursday took oath in the Himachal Pradesh assembly after being brought from a jail in Haryana.

    Chaudhary, sworn in the chamber of Speaker Brij Bihari Lal Butail, has been booked for murder by Haryana Police.

    He was brought to Shimla, where a large number of his supporters were assembled, from Ambala jail under heavy security cover.

    He is one of four suspects in the murder of a 24-year-old woman in Panchkula in Haryana Nov 22.

    “It’s a political conspiracy by my political rivals. I am innocent,” Chaudhary told reporters after taking oath.

    Asked about his confession, he said: “It’s a police theory. I have full faith in the judiciary. I have never confessed that I committed the crime.”

    Ruling out the possibility of quitting the house in the wake of the J.S. Verma Committee report that legislators involved in woman-related crime should morally resign, he said he would come out clean.

    “I will continue to work as a legislator. Even people are contesting elections from behind the bars,” he said. “I have just submitted a list of his priorities as a legislator to the speaker.”

    After evading arrest, Chaudhary surrendered before a Panchkula court Jan 8, the day other legislators took oath.

    Chaudhary is a first-time legislator from Doon in Solan district. He is the son of four-time Congress legislator Lajja Ram.
