Three men on a motorbike shot Saroj Singh, the teacher, dead in Buxar’s Jagdishpur village on April 19

PATNA: Police in Bihar’s Buxar on Thursday claimed to have solved the murder of a 40-year-old schoolteacher, who was the main witness to his brother’s killing, and arrested eight people. Four pistols, 12 live cartridges, five cell phones, and a bike used for the crime were recovered from the accused.

Three men on a motorbike shot Saroj Singh, the teacher, dead in Buxar’s Jagdishpur village on April 19. Buxar police superintendent Niraj Kumar Singh said Saroj Singh’s brother Chitranjan was murdered in 2019.

Chitranjan was accused of murdering Khunti, a former village head and Bahujan Samaj Party leader, and attacking his son Yashwant Yadav in 2018 over some land dispute. In retaliation, Chitranjan was shot dead.

Saroj Singh refused to turn hostile in the trial of his brother’s murder. “Neeraj Yadav and Neeraj Singh, who were recently released from the Buxar central jail, were hired to eliminate the schoolteacher on a contract of 3 lakh,” said Niraj Kumar Singh. He added Yashwant Yadav’s brother provided them 70,000 as advance
