Upon being freed from prison in 1998 in a murder case, 80-year-old Bhola Prasad Shah founded the Sukhasini Hanuman Temple
According to authorities, the founder of a Hanuman Temple in Bihar's Madhepura district was allegedly shot to death on Tuesday night, and his corpse was discovered 300 meters from the temple in the Budhma police barracks in the Udakishunganj police station area.
Upon being freed from prison in 1998 in a murder case, 80-year-old Bhola Prasad Shah founded the Sukhasini Hanuman Temple. The event has sparked fear in the neighborhood.
“The deceased had served 7-years imprisonment in connection with a murder case and was released from jail in 1998. After his release, he was very active in temple construction work and had established the Sukhasini Temple,” Udakishunganj sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) Satish Kumar said.
Following the murder, there was a lot of tension in the neighborhood, and police started looking into it. Shah's body had been sent to Madhepura Sadar Hospital for an autopsy.
“My father was dedicated to temple construction for over two decades and used to sleep in the temple and on the night of the incident, he had returned after attending a religious gathering held about one kilometer from the temple,” victim’s son Vikash Kumar said.
“He went to sleep soon after and was shot dead early the next morning on Wednesday, as I saw him asleep about 2 a.m.,” he continued.
