Noida: Soon after two youths were killed and a woman was injured after being mowed down by Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh's son's convoy in Uttar Pradesh's Gonda, the Trinamool Congress condemned the incident and drew a comparison between the father and the son. Karan Singh is the son of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who is the Kaiserganj MP and the former Wrestling Federation of India chief.

Taking to X, TMC party wrote, “Like father, like son! @b_bhushansharan, notorious for molesting & sexually harassing female wrestlers, has passed his traits to the next generation. His son, @KaranBhushanSi1, BJP's Kaiserganj MP candidate, has taken it a step further by mowing down innocent children with his convoy, killing two and injuring one.”

“It seems criminal behaviour runs in Modi Ka Parivar!,” TMC added.

Kernalganj SHO Nirbhay Narayan Singh said Rehan Khan (17) and Shehzad Khan (20) who were riding on a motorcycle were hit by the vehicle near a school. Both died on the spot.

The SUV that hit the duo lost control and also hit Sita Devi (60) who was walking on the road side, the SHO said. The injured woman was admitted to hospital and police personnel have been deployed in the area to ensure law and order.

Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh denied BJP ticket 

The 67-year-old BJP's strong man was not given a ticket in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls as the former WFI chief has been accused of sexual harassment by six women wrestlers, who had protested against him for a long period last year. Earlier this month, a Delhi court ordered that charges be levied against the Thakur leader.

Singh's son Karan Bhushan Singh has contested against Samajwadi Party's candidate Ram Bhagat Mishra, the elder brother of Shravasti zila panchayat president and former BJP MP from Shravasti, Daddan Mishra, while Bahujan Samaj Party has fielded Narendra Pandey.

Karan, Singh's younger son, is aiming to keep the family's hold on the seat tight, with his father Brij Bhushan having won from there six times, while his mother Ketaki was also a former MP from Gonda. Brij Bhushan's elder son, Prateek, was also an MLA from the Gonda twice.
