Another accomplice on Singhaniya's murder arrested

Date: 2016-05-16 

Police have arrested a man involved in the murder of media entrepreneur from Janakpur, Arun Singhniya, and presented before the Dhanusha District Court on May 15.

The accomplice named Manak Lama was from Biratnagar on May 13.

Earlier, the police investigation had found that former lawmaker Sanjay Saha was the mastermind
behind the murder of media entrepreneur Singhaniya.

Singhaniya was shot dead at a local Shiva Chowk of Janakpur in 2010 over the publication of a news story on crime in his media. He was the Chairperson of Janakpur Today Communications Group in Janakpur, a city in the southern plains of Nepal.

On March 30, the District Police Office, Dhanusha, had filed a case against 11 along with the master mind Saha.  

Though late, the police action against the murderers of media entrepreneur has given a positive message that impunity on the crime relating to media was being checked gradually.
