Three held for murder

Three persons, including a former village head, have been arrested for  murder of an astrologer in Jaunpur district, a senior officer said on Wenesday.

“Former village head Vijay Bahadur Singh, Dhirendra Bahadur Singh and Kaushal Kishore Singh have been arrested in connection with murder of astrologer Ramesh Chandra Tiwari, who was killed on November 15,” said Arun Kumar, additional director general of police.

Tiwari, 34, known as Guruji, was sitting in his house with his family members when two motorcycle-borne youth in police uniform came and opened fire injuring him and his brother.
Kumar said all the persons, who planned the murder, have disputes with Tiwari for one reason or the other.

“The main dispute was with Dhirendra over location of Kasturba Gandhi school,” he said.
