ONE OF the three accused in the murder of Vinod Singh, brother-in-law of newly-elected block pramukh of Karanda Development Block, Sushila Singh, surrendered in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) in Ghazipur, on Thursday.
Police, reportedly, have taken four persons into custody with firearms, escorting the accused Rajendra Singh on the Collectorate premises. Police are interrogating the arrested persons and trying to find out whether their firearms were licenced or not?
Police personnel had already laid a trap around the court premises to arrest the three named accused in wake of their possible surrender following the directive of court on Wednesday to attach the property of the absconding accused under Section 82.
Eversince morning, cops were on duty outside the court in plain dress. But, accused Rajendra, surrounded by some men all of a sudden reached the court of the CJM and tried to enter the courtroom but some cops recognised him. He pushed them aside and entered into the courtroom and surrendered.
It may be noted that Vinod Singh, accompanying block pramukh Sushila Singh, had been shot dead by a gang of miscreants outside the Karanda Development Block headquarters on March 28 evening.
Supporters of Vinod had killed one of the fleeing assailants while another was shot dead by cops during an encounter on the same day.
The cause of the murder was the fallout of the political rivalry between wives of two musclemen of the Karanda development area — Dhananjay Singh and Bheem Singh. Sushila Singh, wife of Dhananjay Singh, had defeated Neelam Singh wife, of Bheem Singh, in the recently concluded block pramukh election.
Meanwhile, police are interrogating the nabbed persons from the court premises today to trace out the locations of two absconding accused of Vinod Singh’s murder.
