JANAKPURDHAM, Oct 2: In a tragic turn of events, a 23-year-old woman, identified as Sonam Sahani Singh from Suklahiya, Darpa Thana-1, Motihari district, India, has been apprehended by Bara police in connection with the murder of her husband, Ajit Kumar Singh.
The shocking incident unfolded on September 26 when Ajit Kumar Singh was fatally shot in Laxminiya, located within Pacharauta Municipality-6 of Bara. According to SP Suresh Kafle, the chief of the District Police Office, Bara, Sonam Sahani Singh is the mastermind behind her husband's murder.
As the investigation continues, five other people involved in the murder remain at large. These suspects are identified as 25-year-old Sujit Kumar Singh, 24-year-old Chanchal Pandey, 22-year-old Manish Kumar Sahani, 20-year-old Kameshwar Sahani, and 20-year-old Ranjit Mukhiya, all hailing from Suklahiya, Darpa Thana-1, Motihari district, India.
The police's preliminary findings suggest that Ajit Kumar Singh was killed as a result of Sonam's plan, with Sujit Kumar Singh playing a significant role in executing the murder. It has been revealed that Sonam was in a romantic relationship with Sujit and engaged in financial transactions with him. The motive behind the murder appears to be Ajit's discovery of this illicit relationship and financial dealings.
Sonam, who resided in Simraungadh, Bara, while her maternal home was in Motihari, India, was allegedly complicit in the murder plan. On the day of the incident, Sujit Kumar Singh was riding the motorcycle driven by Ajit, and upon arriving in Laxminiya, he reportedly shot Ajit after forcing him to stop the motorcycle.
Additionally, three other individuals on a separate motorcycle were observed scouting the scene. Notably, about three years ago, both the deceased and the accused were involved in a gold robbery in Ghodasan, India. They subsequently invested the stolen funds in purchasing land in Chhaudadano, India. SP Kafle revealed that the murder plan stemmed from a dispute over the land's ownership share, and Sujit conspired with Sonam to carry out the murder.
After the murder, Sujit contacted Sonam, who was residing in a rented room in Bara's Simraungadh, to inform her that the deed was done and advised her to flee the scene.
Furthermore, it has come to light that Sujit's group was involved in another fatal incident a year prior to this tragic event, raising concerns about the group's criminal activities and the need for a comprehensive investigation.
