RAJBIRAJ, June 23: In less than a week, three persons including two women have been murdered in Rajbiraj, the district headquarters of Saptari.

On Saturday, Renu Yadav, 24, of Rajbiraj Municipality ward no.12, Singyon was murdered. Police have kept her husband Santosh Yadav in judicial custody suspecting him to be the murderer. Meanwhile, Kaushalidevi Yadav, mother-in-law and Anju Yadav, sister-in-law of the deceased are currently at large, according to police. 

Mahesh Kumar Singh, Chief of Saptari police said that Santosh was arrested following the complaint filed by his in laws. "My daughter was poisoned by her in-laws," claims Ashadevi, mother of the deceased, adding, "If they didn't want to keep her, they'd better sent her to us instead of killing her." They have demanded proper investigation and stern action against the perpetrators. Renu and Santosh have a three years old daughter. Police recovered her dead body at around 8 pm on Saturday.

Earlier on June 14, police recovered the dead body of a pregnant woman from Musaharniya, Rajbiraj-15.  Police suspect the woman was murdered a few days ago and then thrown there. Police reached the site after bad  odor started coming from the dead body. The deceased has been identified as Bechani Kumari Sah, 17. She was four months pregnant. Her husband Suraj Kumar, is currently at large with his one and a half years old daughter.

 Police have intensified the search for her husband and child but in a vain. "We are trying to understand the case from different angles for which we have expedited our investigation," said SP Singh. As per the locals, Suraj was not seen in the villages since 4/5 days before the incident.
Likewise, on June 12, the dead body of Dipendra Kumar Mandal was recovered from the district headquarters.

Police have arrested his wife Anjana Sah and his father-in-law Ramdayal Sah for investigation. As per the preliminary investigation, Dipendra was called to his in-laws' house by Anjana and her father on the occasion of his daughter's birthday.

As informed by the police, they attacked him on his private body parts and killed him. Anjana is the third wife of Dipendra and they had tied the knot some two years ago after an affair. As Dipendra was living with his first wife, Anjana was putting continuous pressure on him to live with her. But Dipendra was for living   with all his three wives. This according to his family members is the reason why Anjana and his father killed him.
 Meanwhile, a ten years old girl of Rajbiraj-3 was raped last Friday. Police have arrested Mohammad Sabir, 32, for allegedly raping the minor. According to police, the victim was going to a local shop to buy something when the perpetrator took her to the banks of Bhaluwahi River tempting her to give chocolate. Police have filed a case of rape against Mohammad.
