Uma killers get life term

Jun 12, 2011-

The District Court, Dhanusha, on Sunday sentenced Lalita Singh and Nemlal Paswan to life in prison for killing district-based journalist Uma Singh.

Among those accused in the Singh murder case, Shrawan Yadav, Abhisek Singh and Bimalesh Jha, however, were handed down clean chits by the court. Singh was hacked to death on Jan 11, 2009. Umesh Yadav, aka Swamiji Yadav, who had owned up the responsibility of Singh’s murder, is still on the run. The District Office of the government attorney said it will file a case against Shrawan, Abhisek and Bimalesh in the Appellate Court soon.
