Bihar: A former JDU leader’s teenage son abducted for ransom murdered, body recovered in Siwan

Bihar has always been a witness to several gruesome crimes. The deteriorating law and order scenario in the state has always been a cause of concern

A 14-year-old teenage son of former JDU leader, late Surendra Patel, who was abducted last evening for a ransom of Rs 50 lakh was found murdered on Thursday in Bihar’s Siwan district.

Rahul Kumar’s body, who was a class 7 student of Kendriya Vidyalaya school, was recovered from a farm in the Mufassil area at around 2 am, Siwan Superintendent of Police Navin Chandra Jha said.

“Abductors killed him fearing arrest after a search and rescue operation was launched,” he said.

The victim’s cousin Rajeev Ranjan informed the police that he received a call from the kidnappers demanding a ransom of Rs. 50 lakh, police added.

KK Mishra, ASP, Siwan confirmed that four people have been arrested in connection and further investigation is underway.

Bihar has always been a witness to several gruesome crimes. The deteriorating law and order scenario in the state has always been a cause of concern.

Along with other crimes, such high profile murder cases ahead of general elections has raised the political temperature in Bihar.

In February, at least three persons including Yusuf, a nephew of former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin, were killed in Bihar. Alert was sounded in Siwan and adjoining districts following the murder.

According to reports, Yusuf was close to Shahabuddin and his son Osama. The incident occurred a few days after the court framed charges against Shahabuddin in connection with journalist Rajdeo Ranjan murder case.

Mafia don and four-term former MP of Lalu Prasad’s RJD, Mohammad Shahabuddin facing trial in over 40 criminal cases, was sent to Tihar jail in February 2017 after he was found controlling his gang from inside Siwan prison.

Two other incidents which highlight the crumbling law and order scenario in the state was the killing of a councillor in Buxar and a police encounter with hardened criminal Kundan Singh in Muzaffarpur.

In another gruesome incident, a four-year-old girl was brutally raped and strangulated in Siwan district, Bihar around midnight on Saturday. A partly buried body of the girl with undergarments stuffed in her mouth was recovered in the maize field and the accused, Mohammad Ziauddin has been arrested, who has confessed to the crime.
