Ajit Jogi Death

Ajit Jogi died in the afternoon of Friday, 29 May 2020, aged 74. His son, Amit Jogi, confirmed the news on his official Twitter handle. Jogi was admitted to hospital after a heart attack, which happened due to tamarind seed which was stuck in his throat.

Ajit Pramod Kumar Jogi (29 April 1946  – 29 May 2020) was an Indian politician, who served as the first chief minister of the state of Chhattisgarh, India. He was a member of the Janta Congress Chhattisgarh (INC) political party.

Jogi studied Mechanical Engineering at Maulana Azad College of Technology, Bhopal, winning the University Gold Medal in 1968. After having worked briefly as a lecturer at the National Institute of Technology, Raipur, he was selected for both the Indian Police Service and Indian Administrative Service.

During the run-up to the 2014 Lok Sabha election over the Mahasamund seat, eleven independent candidates all named Chandu Lal Sahu filed to run. At the time, Jogi’s main contender was Chandu Lal Sahu of the BJP party.Sahu ultimately won the election only by small margin of 133 votes and Jogi was accused of planting those names to confuse voters.

In June 2007, Jogi and his son were arrested in connection with the murder of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) treasurer Ram Avtar Jaggi, who was shot dead in June 2003.However, after five years of the registering of a case against him, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) based on an opinion of then Additional Solicitor General of India (ASG ) Gopal Subramanian said that Jogi could not be prosecuted under any law. However the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alleged that the Congress led UPA government misused the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to protect Jogi.

On 6 June 2016, Jogi announced he was breaking his affiliation with Indian National Congress at a political gathering in Chhattisgarh.

In August 2019, a high-level judicial committee dismissed Jogi’s claim of belonging to a Scheduled Tribe (ST) and canceled all his caste certificates. Jogi was booked under Indian Penal Code sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery of valuable security), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record).

Additionally, Jogi is accused of cheating and forgery in connection with the declaration in a poll affidavit submitted by him during the 2013 Assembly elections. Facing a first information report (FIR) and arrests in the fake caste certificate case, Jogi was admitted to a private hospital in Delhi-NCR after he complained of breathing problem.
