THE REPORTED detention of mafia don Tribhuvan Singh by the CBI in Nepal has scared his white-collar supporters in Purvanchal, especially in his home district Ghazipur.

People close to Tribhuvan are afraid he may reveal their links with him. Tribhuvan Singh is a native of Saidpur in Ghazipur.

He took to crime to avenge his father Rampati Singh’s murder by Maknu and Sadhu Singh over a land dispute in the late eighties.

He got in touch with muscleman Ranjit Singh and together they planned revenge.

At that time, don Brijesh Singh was a B.Sc student in UP College here in Varanasi.

His father was killed at Dhaurahra village in Chaubeypur of Varanasi.
Brijesh then gave up his studies and entered the crime world, joining hands with Ranjit and Tribhuvan. 

With the passage of time, Maknu and Panchu Singh expanded their gang and included Harihar Singh, Banshi Singh, Panchu Singh, Kamlesh, Rudal and Mukhtar Ansari. Tribhuvan and Ranjit Singh gunned down Maknu Singh in 1988.

In retaliation, Maknu’s associate Sadhu Singh shot dead Tribhuvan’s elder brother Rajendra Singh in Police Lines in Varanasi.

Later, Sadhu was killed by Tribuhvan,  Brijesh and Saheb Singh at Ghazipur district jail in 1990.

Mukhtar allegedly shot dead Saheb Singh on the premises of Varanasi Collectorate to avenge Sadhu Singh’s murder.

Brijesh and Tribhuvan went underground since 1989 and started calling the shots in Purvanchal and Bihar.

The names of Tribuhvan and Brijesh came up again a year and a half year ago when Mukhtar Ansari had lodged an FIR against Lucknow police for opening fire on his cavalcade in the Cantonment area.
