Patna: Overturning the trial court order, the Patna High Court on Thursday acquitted former LJP MP Surajbhan Singh and seven others in the sensational murder case of former Bihar minister Brij Bihari Singh on June 13, 1998.
Vijay Kumar Shukla alias Munna Shukla, Rajan Tiwari, Mantu Tiwari, Lallan Singh, Mukesh Singh, Ram Niranjan Chaudhary and Captain Sunil, were the others who were awarded life imprisonment by trial court in 2009 before being acquitted by the High Court today.
An accused in the engineering admissions scam, Brij Bihari was gunned down by heavily armed men inside the premises of the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences in Patna while he was on an evening walk.
He was admitted to the hospital for treatment under judicial custody.
