Gaya, Dec. 10: The statements of two family members of the five girls found murdered in Gaya’s Sonas village on December 5 were recorded in court on Tuesday.
Police took Shashibhushan and Bharatbhushan, two of the three sons of former armyman Pavittar Narayan Singh and fathers of the three of the five girls killed, to the court of judicial magistrate P.K. Jha to get their statements recorded under Section 164.
On Monday, Shashibhushan and cousin Shailendra Singh were detained by the police and interrogated. Shashibhushan is the complainant in the case.
Police brought the two brothers from Khisersarai and produced them in the court of chief judicial magistrate (CJM) Kaushlesh Kumar Singh. The CJM ordered the police to get their statements recorded under Section 164 in the court of judicial magistrate P.K. Jha. It would prevent them from deferring from their statements in future.
On the other hand, police on Tuesday claimed to have got vital clues in the case. While searching Bipin’s residence at Khisersarai, 7km from Sonas, on Monday, experts from the forensic science laboratory (FSL), Patna, spotted blood marks on the lock and the door apart from empty liquor bottles and diaries containing contact numbers.
Blood samples and the vicitms’ viscera were sent for forensic testing on Monday.
Among the five girls killed were Shashibhushan’s daughter Julie, Bharatbhushan’s daughters Sweeti and Reshma and Bipin’s daughters Manisha and Amisha. Bipin has not appeared before the police for interrogation so far. His wife, Meera Devi, has lodged a missing complaint with the police.
