PATNA: Four persons, including the son-in-law and daughter-in-law of the deceased, have been arrested for killing State Bank of India’s retired deputy manager Shailendra Kumar inside his car on NH-30 near Bhikua under Fatuha police station area in rural Patna on Sunday. The car driver, Anil Kumar (55), was also shot at and injured.
SP (rural) Kantesh Kumar Mishra said besides Shailendra’s son-in-law Pawan Kumar (25) and daughter-in-law Nibha Devi (23), police also arrested Pawan’s brother Tinku Kumar (22) and shooter Amar Kumar (21) on Tuesday night. Shailendra (60), who retired from SBI Bhagwat Nagar branch at Agamkuan in Patna City on February 28, was shot dead when he was coming to Patna from his residence in Biharsharif.
SP (rural) Kantesh Kumar Mishra said besides Pawan and Nibha, police arrested Pawan’s brother Tinku Kumar (22) and shooter Amar Kumar (21) for involvement in Shailendra’s murder. Amar was paid Rs40,000 as advance for the contract killing and he was going to take the remaining Rs60,000 when the police nabbed him in Ramkrishna Nagar police station area in Patna. One pistol, a live cartridge, both two-wheelers used in the killing and three cellphones have been seized, he said.
Mishra said the murder was a fallout of extramarital affair and Rs50 lakh Shailendra had paid to Pawan for buying a plot of land in Biharsharif. “Pawan was married to Shailendra’s mentally challenged daughter with apromise that his father-in-law will keep helping him financially to look after her. However, Pawan didn’t receive the assistance as per his wish,” he said.
The SP said Pawan developed an extramarital affair with Shailendra’s elder son’s wife Nibha and they clandestinely got married in a court in February this year. “The elder son is physically challenged. Shailendra had no knowledge about Pawan’s affair with Nibha,” he said.
Mishra said Shailendra wanted to purchase a plot for his younger son who works in a bank. Pawan grabbed the opportunity and took Rs50 lakh from Shailendra in the last four months in the name of buying him a plot in Biharsharif. “However, the land could not be registered and Shailendra was coming to Patna to meet Pawan when he was killed,” he said.
The SP said police have documentary evidence of Rs23 lakh paid to Pawan and Tinku. “Investigation is on to know how the rest amount was paid and where it was invested,” he said.
He said Tinku and Amar were on a bike while Pawan was on a scooty behind Shailendra’s car that day. “Amar had opened fire. He is a resident of Kankarbagh in Patna. Police are trying to ascertain his criminal antecedents,” he said.
