The Inside Story

CRPF Trooper Who Shot Woman Kabaddi Player and Himself Dies in Bihar

A tragic incident occurred at the Moinul Haq Stadium in Ranchi, Jharkhand, where a CRPF trooper shot a national level woman kabaddi player and then shot himself. The player, identified as Manisha Kumari, was from Himachal Pradesh and a member of the Bihar women's kabaddi team. Jaswant Singh, the CRPF trooper who shot her, had been stalking her for a few days before the incident.

The incident took place on Wednesday evening when Manisha refused to give Jaswant Singh her phone number. The trooper then pulled out his AK-47 and shot the player. After shooting her, he turned the gun on himself. Singh was admitted to the Patna Medical College and Hospital, where he passed away on Thursday night due to his injuries.

This unfortunate incident has raised serious concerns about the safety of women players and highlights the need for better security measures. The Bihar police have launched an investigation into the matter, and appropriate action will be taken against those found guilty.

Syed Modi Murder Case: The Verdict

On July 28, 1988, eight-time national badminton champion Syed Modi was shot dead outside KD Singh Babu Stadium in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. 21 years later, in 2009, a Lucknow sessions court finally sentenced the lone surviving accused, Bhagwati Singh, to life imprisonment, without establishing any motive for the murder. The court refused to go into alleged links of the murderer with politician Sanjay Singh and Modi's ex-wife Amita Singh, saying no conspiracy was established by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The trial judge, Shashank Shekhar, awarded Bhagwati Singh life imprisonment and a fine of Rs 40,000, along with five years of rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10,000 for the unauthorized weapon recovery from his possession. The judge turned down the plea of CBI to award him death penalty, holding that the agency had not been able to establish that Bhagwati acted at the behest of persons with a motive to kill the national badminton champion in the manner of a professional killer. The court pronounced its sentence on the basis of eyewitness accounts without going into the motive part of the crime.

The trial implicated the ex-wife of the victim, Amita Singh, UP minister Sanjay Singh, politician Akhilesh Singh, and Akhilesh's henchmen, among whom only Bhagwati and Jitendra were put on trial by the CBI. Amita and Sanjay were discharged of charges earlier, and Akhilesh got a clean chit from the Allahabad HC in 1996. The judge, while convicting Bhagwati on the basis of direct eyewitness evidence, acquitted Jitendra, giving him the benefit of doubt as none of the witnesses could recognize him.
