4 surrender in Wasseypur case

Dhanbad, Oct. 4: Four family members of Wasseypur-based jailed don Fahim Khan who were accused in Monday’s sensational murder of furniture trader Sonu Khan today surrendered in court.

An adversary of Fahim Khan, 40-year-old Sonu Khan alias Shamshad Alam was shot at by unidentified men near Naya Bazar in Bank More police station area around 8.40pm while returning home after closing his shop.

Sonu Khan was also an aide of Sabir Alam, Fahim Khan’s arch-rival.

The gangster’s two sons — Iqbal Khan and Rajjan Khan — and nephews Gopi Khan and Prince Khan, who were named accused with four others, were sent to judicial custody after they surrendered in the court of chief judicial magistrate Ashok Kumar Pathak.

On Tuesday, Mohammed Mumtaz Ali alias Chand, a younger brother of the victim, lodged an FIR accusing eight persons of the Fahim Khan gang. Ali named Fahim Khan as the conspirator of the murder. The others named in the FIR were Fahim Khan’s brother-in-law Tunna Khan and the latter’s two accomplices, Pappu Pachak and Mister Khan.

“We are continuing to raid various parts of the district in order to arrest the other three accused,” said OC of Bank More police station S.S. Tiwari.
