Indore: CBI ton Wednesday filed a 12-page charge sheet against suspected mining mafia member and main accused Manoj Gurjar in the murder case of Madhya Pradesh IPS officer Narendra Kumar Singh.
   
CBI submitted the charge sheet before the court of judicial magistrate (I) Suman Srivastava here.
   
Gurjar has been charged under section 304 (culpable homicide) and 353 (obstructing government work) of IPC and Motor Vehicle Act. CBI prosecutor A H Khan said it was "not an intentional murder" and was non-political.
