The deceased was identified as Saroj Singh who was the main witness to his brother’s killing.
Police in Buxar area of Bihar arrested 8 people in connection with the murder of a 40-year-old school teacher.
The deceased was identified as Saroj Singh who was the main witness to his brother’s killing. Singh was allegedly shot dead by three motorbike-borne miscreants on April 19.
Singh’s brother, Chitranjan was murdered in 2019 in retaliation to the murder of one former village-head Khunti.
It is alleged that Chitranjan attacked Khunti and his son, Yashwant Yadav in 2018 over some land dispute where Khunti was killed.
Meanwhile, Saroj Singh refused to turn hostile in the trial of his brother’s murder. It is reported that Yashwant hired two people who were released from jail recently to eliminate the school teacher on a contract of Rs 3 lakh.
Sources claimed that Yashwant also paid the duo a sum of Rs 70,000 as an advance. The two culprits were identified as Neeraj Singh and Neeraj Kumar Singh.
Police have also recovered four pistols, 12 live cartridges, five cell phones, and a bike used for the crime from the possession of the arrested accused.
