Former Bihar MP close to Lalu Yadav jailed in murder case

A District Court of Hazaribagh in Jharkhand has convicted former RJD MLA and MP Prabhu Nath Singh in a 1995 MLA Ashok Singh murder case today.

Ashok Singh, a Janata Dal MLA from Masrakh, was killed at his house in Patna following which Prabhunath Singh was named as the prime accused in the murder case.

ASUS ZenFone AR will launch at Verizon this summer
That energized developers and consumers who are seeking an all-in-one device for augmented reality and virtual reality. ASUS simply says it will be available in the "summer", meaning it could launch at any point in a three-month span.


Soon after the court convicted Prabhunath Singh - a three-term JD (U) and one time RJD MP from Maharajganj in north Bihar- as well as his brother Dinanath Singh and former mukhiya Ritesh Singh, the trio was taken into custody and sent to jail. The quantum of punishment for the trio will be announced on May 23.

The verdict has come as a serious setback to Lalu Prasad as both his trusted men, Prabhunath Singh and Mohammad Shahabuddin, are now being pushed behind the bars. Three others were injured in the blast that was triggered at the behest of Prabhunath Singh, who was defeated by Ashok Singh in the Assembly polls just three months ago.

Trump denies ever urging Comey to back off Flynn investigation
Burr initially indicated Flynn's lawyer said the retired general would reject the committee's subpoena for his private documents. It's not likely to matter, though, because according to sources, Trump doesn't feel Flynn should even be under investigation.


"Justice has prevailed after 22 long years. Prabhunath had openly said that my brother will be killed within 90 days of becoming legislator and was killed on the 90th day", Tarkeshwar Singh, Ashok Singh's brother, told a news channel. "My husband had survived an attack masterminded by him a few years before his murder", she added.

Initially a vocal opponent of Prasad, Singh joined the RJD in 2012.
