Former Member of Parliament from Munger Dhanraj Singh’s 45-year-old businessman son was found dead on railway tracks near Phulwarisharif in Patna with his body badly mutilated on Wednesday night.
Family suspected murder and alleged involvement of some close relatives.
The Government Railway Police (GRP) said body of Amrendra Singh alias Bablu was found near outer signal of Phulwarisharif, barely four kilometres from Patna railway station where Singh had boarded a train for Jamshedpur where he ran a school.
Police said the body was disfigured and both hands were found cut.
The victim’s mother Rajmani Singh and wife Geeta Singh alleged that Amrendra was “murdered and his body was thrown on railways tracks to pass it off as an accident”.
Geeta Singh, who lives at Patna, said: “Though we are waiting for post-mortem report, my husband’s body has several injury marks on head and eyes suggesting use of sharp weapons. Amrendra had arguments with a relative over business interest recently. We suspect murder and want a thorough investigation”.
Police said Amrendra had clash of interest with some relatives over possession of Raj Tower – a marketing complex at Boring Road here. Amrendra had property dealing business besides ownership of a Jamshedpur school.
