In a fresh development in the Revati Singh murder case, police has published the photographs of two persons, accused in the killing of the wife of a senior BJP leader Hukkum Singh, here.
The police released the photographs of the absconding persons, Ravi of Madhubani district in Bihar and Pradeep of Gazipur district in UP. Meanwhile, the police has announced a cash reward of Rs 12,000 for providing information about the accused.
Three persons, including two domestic helps, Shankar and Lallan alongwith another Joshodh Chaudhury have been arrested so far and cash worth Rs 5,28,000 recovered from them. Police parties have been sent to Bihar and Gazipur in an attempt to nab the accused, police said. 75-year-old Revati was murdered allegedly by two servants, who looted lakhs of rupees in cash, her husband Hukkum Singh, BJP deputy leader in state Assembly had said in his FIR.
Her body was found in the bedroom of her Gandhi colony house on July 31 and circumstantial evidence indicated that she was murdered, Additional Director General of Police Brij Lal had said. The ADGP had earlier ruled out the possibility of murder for loot as the belongings of Revati, including a gold chain, diamond earrings, bangles and her mobile phone were recovered from the room.
However, after Hukkum Singh claimed that lakhs of rupees was missing from the house, it is being probed if she was murdered for loot.
