Bihar’s Ruling Janata Dal (U) legislator Anant Singh was arrested in a case of kidnapping and extortion at Bihita in rural Patna. He has been sent to 14-day judicial custody.
The arrest took place a day after a senior police officer disclosed his involvement in another case of kidnap-murder of four persons, an issue which has snowballed into a major political challenge for Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Anant Singh was arrested in a 2014 case of kidnapping of a builder at Bihta in rural Patna, Senior Superintendent of Police Vikash Vaibhav said.
Singh’s arrest came after hours of search by the police under the leadership of Patna SSP at his official residence for evidence in connection with the June 17 kidnapping of four youths one of whom was later found murdered.The SSP said that six magazines of Insas rifle were found during the search at his official residence besides clothes soaked in blood, which would be sent for DNA test.
Though Singh was arrested in an old case, the disclosure by outgoing SSP of Patna Jitendra Rana of Singh’s alleged involvement in the June 17 case of kidnapping of four persons in his native Ladwa in Barh block of Patna district posed a challenge to Nitish Kumar government as RJD, ally of JD-U, demanded Singh’s arrest.
