Bihar Violence: Main accused Anil Singh surrenders before court





New Delhi, April 2: In Aurangabad communal violence case, main accused Anil Singh surrenders before court. Earlier Police had said that he had fled from custody.

 BJP leader Anil Singh, the key accused in inciting communal violence in Bihar's Aurangabad district, surrendered on Monday, two days after he escaped from police custody, the authorities said.

Soon after he surrendered, Singh was sent to 14 days judicial custody, Aurangabad Superiintendent of Police Satya Prakash Singh said.

Singh, who is also associated with the Hindu Seva Samiti, is said to have played the key role in inciting violence in Aurangabad during a Ram Navami procession late last month.

On Saturday night, Union Minister Ashwini Choubey's son Arijit Shashwat, accused of inciting violence in Bhagalpur district, surrendered after evading arrest for over a week.

Shashwat was sent to 14 days judicial custody on Sunday but he will approach the Patna High Court on Monday for bail.

Bihar's Aurangabad, Nawada, Samastipur, Munger, Bhagalpur and Nalanda disticts have witnessed communal tension in the last 10 days. 

Additional security forces have been deployed in the affected towns.

The opposition parties have slammed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for what they called his "failure to handle the situation".
