The Uttarakhand High Court on November 10, 2021, Acquitted former Member of Parliament (MP) DP Yadav in the 1992 murder case of Bhartiya Janata Party Legislator Mahendra Singh Bhati in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh.

Due to lack of evidence, RS Gill, who is the lawyer for DP Yadav, announced that the Division Bench of Chief Justice RS Chauhan and Justice Alok Kumar Verma acquitted DP Yadav of all the murder charges that were filed against him.

Sandeep Tandon, who was the Lawyer for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in this case, stated that a Special Court in Dehradun had sentenced DP Yadav and convicted him under Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) for the murder of Mahendra Singh Bhati. Yadav moved to the High Court in 2015 to challenge the Special Court Order of his conviction.

Sandeep Tandon also stated, “Yadav has been Acquitted under all these charges. He is currently on extended short-term Bail on health grounds, which was set to expire within a day or two. Earlier this year, he had been granted Bail twice on health grounds.” He also stated that they (CBI) will go through Uttarakhand High Court judgement and then make a decision on whether they will challenge the Acquittal in the Supreme Court.
