Jehanabad, Jul 18: Four FIRs have been registered in the case of assault of a woman and her associate after they were allegedly stripped of in connection with a case of abduction-murder of two youths in Bihar's Jehanabad district yesterday, police said on Friday.

Four FIRs have been registered with town police station in connection with the incident, Superintendent of Police Aditya Kumar told PTI. Station House Officer of town police station Nagendra Singh said that an FIR has been registered on the basis of statement of the victim woman Sangita Devi against 4-5 persons.

Another one has been registered by her associate Munna Kumar, he said. The third FIR has been registered by the police against 600 unknown people for pelting stones on police. The fourth FIR has been lodged by father of one of the victim youth Chunnu Sharma, the SHO said. The SP said that police investigations were on.

The incident had its echo in the Bihar Legislative Assembly today. BJP's Ram Naresh Yadav raised the issue during Zero Hour in the House and demanded strict action against culprits. The woman and her associate were hospitalised after a mob assaulted them as news of the abduction spread in Jehanabad on Wednesday night.

The duo were later arrested after two bodies, which were recovered on Wednesday from under the bridge over river Punpun under Singauri police station of Masaurhi sub-division of Patna district, were identified as those of the youths — Neeraj Kumar (24) alias Rakesh Kumar and Chhunu Sharma (30).

Neeraj and Chhunu visited Jehanabad town from Patna a couple of days ago with Rs 15 lakh to help the woman in purchasing a plot and had been missing since then. The woman is admitted at Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) and her associate was admitted to a local hospital in Jehanabad.

The event had caught attention of Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi who said strict action would be initiated against the wrongdoers. Former Chief Minister Nitish Kumar yesterday asked state police chief PK Thakur to personally look in the matter.

State Women Commission had intervened in the matter. Its Chairperson Anjum Ara had herself visited PMCH and recorded statement of the victim woman.
