Please tell that Raja Man Singh was killed in an encounter in 1985, a day after the then Rajasthan Chief Minister Shiv Charan Mathur’s helicopter crashed from his jeep. Mathur went to Bharatpur to campaign for retired bureaucrat Vijendra Singh. Singh was fielded by the Congress Party against 7-time Independent MLA Man Singh. Raja Man Singh was upset that Congress workers had torn their posters before meeting with the then Chief Minister.
