New Delhi: Day after the alleged shooter Mohammad Kaif aka Bunty was spotted with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Mohammad Shahabuddin, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has issued a warrant against the culprit in the journalist Rajdev Ranjan murder case.

Reports said a team of the investigation agency will soon leave for Siwan to take over the probe. They will also impound Kaif’s house in connection with an extortion case.

The nation was taken aback after an image surfaced showing Kaif standing with notorious RJD leader Mohammad Shahabuddin.

Widow of the slain journalist Rajdev Ranjan demanded justice for the murder of her husband and called out to the state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to take action against criminals.

Meanwhile, Kaif claimed that he is not a criminal saying that he had a ‘brotherly’ relation with the slain journalist Rajdev Ranjan.
