Ankit Jha's body, who was working as a quality engineer with Reliance Telecom, was found at a place 60 kilometer from the capital Patna. He was involved in the laying of optical fiber network in the district.
According to sources, Jha may have been murdered by criminals and the body dumped in the ditch. While the body has been sent for autopsy, a probe is on to find the criminals.
His family had said that he left for work on Sunday night. His brother had said,"He left at night saying his company car was waiting outside. I thought it must be office work. When I tried to call him in the morning, both his phones were switched off. We then started looking for him but couldn't find him."
On Saturday, two engineers of a private road construction company were shot dead by two unidentified men in Darbhanga district. Six people have been arrested in connection with the murders.
Meanwhile, taking the cue, BJP's Rajeev Pratap Rudy said,"It would not be fair to say that people are paying what they deserve, but we all knew that this is going to happen in Bihar, despite them (Lalu-Nitish) getting victorious. The fact is BJP had promised good governance, people rejected us, they accepted Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar as their leaders."
