Balika Vidyapeeth’s ex-secretary murder case: CBI books Amrapali Group MD, six others

New Delhi, January 11: Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday booked Anil Sharma, managing director of Amrapali Group, and six others in the August 2014 murder of a former secretary of a renowned educational institute in Bihar.

CBI took over the probe on the orders of Patna high court.


Dr Sharad Chandra, the then secretary of Balika Vidyapeeth in Lakhisarai, was shot dead on August 2, 2014, while he was reading newspaper at his residence inside university campus.

The case was initially investigated by local police before being transferred to the Bihar Police's crime investigation department (CID) in October of that year.

In 2017, Chandra's wife, Usha Sharma, filed a writ petition in the Patna High Court, questioning the CID's conduct.

The deceased was also regularly threatened and attacked, his house was damaged and firings were made in past,” the FIR reads.
