Advocate Jitendra Kumar (52) was shot dead near Bihar Rajya Jal Parshad office at Punaichak under Shastri Nagar police station area in broad daylight on Wednesday. Jitendra’s elder brother Raj Kumar, a homeopathic doctor, had made nine persons named accused in FIR lodged in connection with the killing.
The named accused included Jitendra’s wife Neetu, his brother-in-law Pansujit Kumar, father-in-law Krishna Singh, mother-in-law Laxmi Devi besides Rakesh, Rupesh and his wife Supriya Devi, Ritesh and Mohammad Tazuddin.
Shastri Nagar police station SHO Nehar Bhushan said in police investigation, it has surfaced that Jitendra was involved in talks with a builder to sell his 20 kattha of prime land at Moti Chowk in Khagaul while his brother-in-law had sold it to Tazuddin using power of attorney created on basis of forged document.
“Tazuddin was also trying to sell it to another builder while Rakesh, Rupesh and Ritesh were also putting efforts to grabs the plot,” he said.
Rakesh, Rupesh and Ritesh were living at a house at Moti Chowk in Khagaul which was sold by Raj’s youngest brother Santosh Kumar several years back. The disputed land, which was advocate’s paternal property, is situated just beside the house.
While Rupesh owns a jewellery shop, the other two brothers were land brokers. Tazuddin is also a land broker from Gardanibagh locality.
Bhushan said police conducted raid at residence of Tazuddin on late Wednesday night but he was evading arrest.
“He had fled almost three days back raising suspicion that he might be the one who had actually hired contract killers for eliminating Jitendra,” Bhushan said.
The SHO said it was yet not known that how much was paid to killers for the hit-job and who had paid it.
“Apart from Tazuddin, Supriya, Pansujit and his mother were also evading arrest,” he said. Bhushan said Jitendra’s father-in-law lives in Kolkata and his address was being verified.
