Muzaffarnagar: The UP police have alerted
their Bihar counterparts to arrest two men, accused in the
murder of wife of a senior BJP leader Hukkum Singh and
announced rewards for any information that will help in
nailing the culprits, officials said here Tuesday.

Two domestic helps have already been taken into
custody and are being interrogated in connection with the
murder. A sum of two lakhs was recovered from them.

Two other accused, Ravi and Jasodha, are still at
large and the police have announced a cash reward of Rs.
12,000 for any lead that will help them nab them, SSP Praveen
Kumar said.

Kumar said Bihar police has been alerted to arrest the
two absconding men belonging to Madhubani district there.

75-year-old Revati was murdered allegedly by the two
servants, who looted lakhs of rupees in cash, her husband
Hukkum Singh, BJP deputy leader in state Assembly had said in
his FIR.

Her body was found in the bedroom of her Gandhi colony
house on Sunday and circumstantial evidence indicated that she
was murdered, Additional Director General of Police Brij Lal
had said.

The ADGP had earlier ruled out the possibility of
murder for loot as the belongings of Revati, including a gold
chain, diamond earrings, bangles and her mobile phone were
recovered from the room.

However, after Hukkum Singh claimed that lakhs of
rupees was missing from the house, it is being probed if she
was murdered for loot.
