Suspended lawmaker Sanjaya Kumar Sah, who masterminded the Janakpur bomb incident, has also been linked to the murder of media entrepreneur Arun Singhaniya.
Investigating officers at the Dhanusha District Police Office (DPO) claimed that Sah was involved in both the blast and Singhaniya’s murder in 2010. Elected from Dhanusha-4 to the second Constituent Assembly, Sah was suspended after probe opened into the blast. He was later taken to the Dhanusha DPO from Central Jail Kathmandu for investigation into the murder.
According to sources, Chandradeep Yadav, the main suspect, said Sah and his aide Ram Govinda Yadav had provided Rs1 million for the crime. Chandradeep was held from Wakil Tole , Janakpur-1 last week. Singhaniya, who chaired the Janakpur Today Communications Group, was shot dead at Shiva Chowk in Janakpur on March 1, 2010. Singhaniya had disputes with Anurag Giri, then-MD of Radio Today, over editorial matters and land transaction.
