DHANBAD: Sadhan Banerjee, neighbour of the Barnwals in Dhanbad, is shaken. "We thought law and order has improved in Bihar which has changed for the better. But we were wrong," a deeply disturbed Banerjee said as he berated police and policing in the state.

According to Banerjee, the Barnwals' house was locked as everyone left for Jamui on hearing the tragic news. "My neighbours planned the family picnic at Rajgir because they believed police, not criminals, ruled the roost in Bihar now. They left on Saturday morning in their Alto car. Ah, what a horrible price they paid only hours later for this wrong notion!" Banerjee said.

Police on Friday arrested Naresh Barnwal, husband of Suman, for allegedly masterminding her murder on March 25 night in a highway in Lakhisarai district while they were on way to Jamui.

The police charged him with conspiring Suman’s murder as he wanted to marry her cousin, who used to live in Gaya, the hometown of Suman. The cousin, Khushboo, has also been arrested.


According to Lakhisarai superintendent of police S Premlata, Naresh wanted to eliminate his wife so that he could marry his wife’s cousin. She was speaking at Halsi police station, located around 16 km from the Lakhisarai district headquarters.

The SP said Khushboo had helped Naresh, an insurance agent from Amlabad in Bokaro district of Jharkhand, in hatching the conspiracy. Also arrested in this connection is Bharat Singh of Lakhisarai who allegedly carried out the job. The SP also said that Basant and Naresh have confessed to their involvement in the crime.

Khushboo, a final-year BA student in Gaya is the daughter of Suman’s paternal uncle. Only on Wednesday, when the allegation was first made by Suman’s brother, Rajesh, she and her father denied that there was any extra marital relationship with Naresh. They had then said that as a cousin’s husband Naresh used to come to their house too. Naresh too had told media that he had no such relationship with Khushboo.

Rajesh, along with his wife and child, was also in the car, which was waylaid on March 25. Initially he did not make any such allegations. It was on March 28 that he first suspected the involvement of his brother-in-law in the murder of her sister.

What is more intriguing is that Naresh was not going to his mausi’s place in Jamui, but to Suman’s mausi (mother’s sister) and as reported he was accompanied by wife, Rajesh and his wife.

Inspector-general, Bhagalpur, A K Ambedkar, who had been camping in Lakhisarai ever since the murder, was quoted in media as saying that police interrogated Naresh and Khushboo separately. “Naresh admitted that he had conspired to kill his wife and for that he engaged some contract killers.”

On the other hand Premlata, quoting Basant, a resident of Sirkhandi village under Halsi police station in Lakhisarai district, said Rs 30,000 was paid by Naresh as advance while the remaining amount (said to be Rs 40,000) was to be paid after the “work” was over. Three unsuccessful attempts were made earlier to kill Suman.

However, the local media is now saying that Basant has no criminal antecedents. Moreover, no firearm has so far been seized by the police.

Naresh’s family members at Amlabad in Chandankiyari are shocked by the disclosure. His elder brother Lakshman Prasad Barnawal, had earlier rebutted the allegation against Naresh.

He said the whole case seemed implausible. “He has never killed a mosquito in his life. How could I then suspect him of killing his own wife,” he was quoted in a daily.

“I have also heard rumours that Naresh killed his wife because he had taken out a life insurance policy of Rs 50 lakh for her. But I am not aware of any such policy,” said Lakshman.

He said that after the allegation levelled by Suman’s brother Rajesh, he had asked Naresh if there was any truth behind the charges but the latter denied his involvement and said he was being trapped.

He said that his brother, a Commerce graduate from Jharia, joined LIC as an agent about two years back, and was doing good business. His conjugal life after his marriage in 2007 to Suman was also smooth.

I believe the whole cause of this ugly incident is Extreme poverty, Lack of Education and Zero Moral outlook towards Life. Rapes happens more in Delhi but Anti-Bihar media stops to portray that. If a single bad thing happens from Great Magadh(Bihar), they start to abuse the whole Race. But soon, I will change such things. Jai Bihar.

March 26 (IANS) A group of robbers waylaid a car on a Bihar road, gangraped a woman occupant before shooting her dead and looted valuables worth Rs.2 lakh from her family, police said Monday.
Robbers took control of the vehicle in which she and her family were travelling on Jamui-Sheikhpura road in Jamui, about 200 km from here, police said.



The woman in her mid 30s, a resident of neighbouring Jharkhand, was first gangraped and then shot dead, police said.

Naresh Prasad Barnwal, a close relative of the victim, said some armed road robbers forced their vehicle to follow them to a remote location Sunday night. "They looted us and gangraped and shot dead her," he said.

Barnwal said road robbers threatened them not to report the incident to police. "We were returning after visiting the historical site of Rajgir in Nalanda district," he said. According to police, the injured family members have been admitted to hospital for treatment.

police was not ready to take case against robbers.They wasted many hours on decision making regarding the thana where case will registerd. This gives enough time to rebbers. Police have lodged a case against unidentified robbers after senior officers orders to register a case. . "No arrests have been made in the case," a police official said.jai ho bihar police ki.jay ho nitish ke sushan ki
