POLICE ARRESTED the main accused in the bomb attack on newly elected Jungle Kauria block pramukh Brijesh Yadav.

Special Operations Group arrested the accused at Sihapar crossing, under Sahjanwa police station. The accused Rudal Singh is the brother of Gorakh Singh, who was defeated by Brijesh in the block pramukh election.

Police arrested two others, including Shailesh Singh and Virendra Tiwari. All are residents of Ahirauli village, under Chiluatal police station. The accused confessed to the crime.

SSP Dipesh Kumar Juneja said a team led by SP City Dilip Kumar was constituted to arrest the accused. On Sunday, the police got a tip-off and arrested the main accused. He claimed police also recovered the motorcycle used by the assailants in the case.

Rudal Singh said his brother Gorakh Singh was not aware of the plan to eliminate Brijesh Yadav. Earlier, police lodged an FIR against the accused under Sections 307, 427, 504 and 506 of the IPC.

Police were interrogating the other accused regarding the bomb attack.
In view of tension prevailing in the village, PAC personnel were deployed.
Four persons sustained injuries when miscreants hurled bombs on Brijesh and his supporters near Maniram railway crossing, while he was on his way to Gorakhnath temple.

Bharatiya Janata Party MP Yogi Adityanath had issued a warning to the district administration to arrest the accused within 12 hours.

In the last ten years, rivalry between the two groups has claimed six lives.
This year, Hindu Yuva Vahini candidate Brijesh Yadav was declared elected.
