A former deputy mayor of Dhanbad, a nephew of late coal mafia leader-turned-politician Surya Deo Singh, was shot dead along with three aides in Dhanbad district on Tuesday evening. The incident took place on a busy road in an area under Saraidhela police station’s jurisdiction. According to police, Neeraj Singh, in his mid-forties and the deputy mayor between 2005 and 2015, was returning home in an SUV — a Mahindra Scorpio – with two private guards (Ashok Yadav and Goltu) and his driver Munna when it was intercepted near Steel Gate intersection, around 7.15 pm. The assailants opened fire from the front, and fled thereafter. His aides died on the spot. Singh died soon after he was taken to the nearby Central Hospital.
A police official on condition of anonymity said that a feud in the extended family of late Surya Deo Singh could have led to the killings. Family members and supporters of Neeraj Singh, who was a Congress leader and unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Jharkhand Assembly elections from Jharia seat in Dhanbad district, blamed the police and administration for lapses. Outside the hospital, a large, agitating crowd began protesting, and the police had a tough time controlling them.
