Bihar: Ranvir Sena activist held

JEHANABAD: In a major breakthrough, the Jehanabad police on Thursday night arrested the self-styled divisional commander of the Ranvir Sena, Ajgaybee Sharma, along with five associates from Pokhwan village under Shakurabad police station in the district.

Ajgaybee, wanted in two dozen cases of extortion, murder and massacre, registered with Tekari, Konch and Belaganj police stations of Gaya district and Goh and Uphare police station of Aurangabad district, had been evading arrest for the past several years. While in hiding, he had been coordinating the activities of the banned outfit in the Magadh division.

The most gruesome incident in which Ajgaybee is alleged to be involved is the massacre at Miyapur village in Aurangabad district when he and his associates reportedly shot dead 34 persons and injured another 20.

A police team headed by Shakurabad PS OC Ashok Kumar, raided a house in Pokhwan village around midnight and arrested Ajgaybee and his associates including the owner of the house, Sachidanand Sharma.

Two country-made pistols and live cartridge were also recovered from their possession.
