Worker,Sanjhali Devi,accused of killing manager of Bharatvarshiya Diagambar Jain Tirth Shetra Committee PC Sharma,has been arrested and remanded in judicial custody.
Devi,who worked as a daily wager for the guest house managed by the committee at Madhuvan,told the police that she was angry with Sharma who had dismissed her from service.Also,she had confessed that she had connived with five other Naxalites to kill him.
The police believe that the Naxalites had kiiled Sharma at the behest of this maid.”We have already identified these accused.We hope to bring them to justice soon”,said Giridih SP Amol V Homkar.
Sharma was murdered with a bullet and a lethal weapon outside the Diagambar jain premise in Madhuvan,Giridih on October 7.
Sanjhali’s interrogation revealed that she,a resident of the nearby village,worked as a maid at the premise.She had an illicit relationship with a staff of this premise who was close to Sharma.Due to her illicit relationship with him,Sharma had dismissed her.
Since she was hand in glove with Naxalites,Sanjhali did not sit idle.Soon, under the pressure of the Naxalites,she was reinstated whereas the staff was dismissed by Sharma.Later,Sharma axed Sanjhali and reinstated the staff.The Naxalites again put pressure on Sharma to employ her.But Sharma did not provide them relief,according to the police.
Soon,a conspiracy was hatched by them with the result that minutes before his murder,she came to him and asked him to come out from the premise.”When he came out,he was shot at.After he fell down,he was hit by a lethal weapon”,said the FIR filed by SI Panchanan Murmu after his murder.
