A politician was on Saturday arrested in connection with a murder case in Palamau district, a senior police officer said.

"Anil Chowrasia was arrested from Majheon village of Palamau district," the deputy superintendent of police, Braj Mohan Paswan, told newsmen in Medininagar.

Chowrasia had contested and lost Daltongaj assembly seat in 2000 on RJD ticket, in 2005 as an Independent and in 2007 (bypoll) on the ticket of AJSU party.

"Chowrasia has been charged with collusion in the killing of a local BJP leader Shiv Singh. The police gathered evidence tracking a mobile phone conversation between him and one of the accused," claimed paswan, but did not reveal details of their conversation.

Singh was killed in February this year, a year after unknown gunmen shot dead his elder brother, the police officer said.
