JANAKPUR — Suspended lawmaker Sanjay Sah on Tuesday was brought to Janakpur from the Capital after Chandra Deep Yadav, alleged mastermind behind the murder, spoke of his role on murdering of media entrepreneur Arun Singhaniya.
Shah, who was accused of implanting a bomb in Janakpurdham in 2012, killing five persons, was drawn into the investigation into another yet-to-be-solved crime, murder of Singhaniya.
Singhaniya, who was the director of Janakpur Today Communications Group, was shot dead at Shiva Chowk in Janakpur on March 1, 2010.
Yadav was arrested last week.
Yadav told police that Sah, not him, was the person who arranged the crime, police said.
The suspended lawmaker was kept in the judicial custody in Kathmandu to probe into the bomb explosion.
Sah is also a convict of two criminal cases — arms and ammunition case and public offence case.
Sah had won the second Constituent Assembly election from Dhanusha-4 representing the Sadbhawana Party. His membership in the Parliament, however, was suspended after police accused him of the explosion and the Court subsequently sent him to the judicial custody, in May 2014.
