CBI announces Rs10 lakh bounty for providing info about killers of Ranvir Sena’s chief
Sena chief Barmeshwar Mukhia was killed by unidentified miscreants in June 2012
PATNA: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probing the killing of disbanded Ranvir Sema chief Barmeshwar Nath Singh alias Barmeshwar Mukhia on Monday announced a cash reward of Rs10 lakh to the person providing information about his killers.
Barmeshwar Mukhia, 70, is blamed for plotting at least 29 massacres in Bihar in the 90’s—the deadliest being the Laxmanpur-Bathe massacre in Jehanabad in which 58 dalit villagers were killed.
All the victims in 29 massacres carried out by the Ranvir Sena, a private militia of upper caste Bhumihar landlords, were Dalits, backwards or poor villagers, reports said.
Mukhia, a resident of Khopira village in Bhojpur district, had gone out for morning walk in the locality on June 01, 2012 when he was killed by unidentified persons.
The CBI has filed a charge-sheet against eight persons during the course of investigation yet the investigating agency wants more information about the killers.
The CBI has now asked anyone having substantial information to share with the former for which they will not only be paid Rs10 lakh in cash but also their name will be kept secret. The CBI has issued at least four numbers inviting information about the killers.
Most of the posters seeking information about Mukhia’s killers have been pasted in Bhojpur district.
