A former bodyguard of Anant Singh, JD(U) MLA from Mokama, was arrested Friday in connection with a kidnapping case. The MLA had already been arrested in the case last month.
Patna SSP Vikas Vaibhav confirmed that one of the MLA’s former bodyguards, Bipin Singh, was arrested in connection with the kidnapping of one Raju Singh of Bihta. Raju, who had lodged a case against the MLA for extortion demand of Rs 10 crore, was kidnapped on November 24 last year. Bipin Singh was later removed from duty at the MLA’s place. He is currently posted as assistant sub-inspector with the Special Branch. Police sources said Bipin Singh owns property disproportionate to his known sources of income and has been under police scanner.
