Bhopal: The BJP has accepted the resignation of MLA Dhruv Narayan Singh as vice president of the state unit, which he tendered on Tuesday night.

His name has figured in the RTI activist Shehla Masood murder case.

State unit chief Prabhat Jha accepted the resignation on Wednesday, BJP sources said.

Dhurv Narayan represents Bhopal Central constituency in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly.

The CBI, which is probing the Masood murder case, has already questioned him. He also underwent a lie-detector test in New Delhi.

Afterwards, Singh told reporters that allegations levelled against him by architect Zahida Parvez, an accused in the case, were baseless, and he was completely innocent.
