Bajhang murder case: Brothers claim they slaughtered family, cattles in trance
KATHMANDU: In a shocking revelation of the police investigation of the Bajhang murder case, the police revealed that two brothers had murdered their own family members.
Earlier, it was said that seven persons were killed in a brawl that ensued after the family dispute over land inheritance took a nasty turn.
According to Deputy Superintendent of Police of Bajhang, Surya KC, the two brothers, Gagan BK and Birjit BK, of Syadi VDC-9 in the remote area of the district had murdered the seven members of their families on Saturday evening.
DSP KC said the BK brothers living in a same house had murdered Birjit’s wife Jhankidevi BK, 35, sons Rajendra, Karan and Keshav, and daughter Laxmi.
The murderers had used domestic weapons, sharp knifes, axes and Khukuris in the incident, police said.
Similarly, Gagan’s son Pawan and daughter Pabitra were also murdered in the same incident.
It is said that Jhankidevi was nine months’ pregnant.
KC said that Birjit and Gagan had shut the doors by keeping all the family members inside the house.
KC said, “Investigation has revealed that the two brothers (Gagan and Birjit) murdered their family members. They have lost their mental order after the incident.”
Though seven members of the family were murdered, the alleged murderers have sustained no injury.
It is learnt that Birjit was working in India to win his wages and had returned home just some days before the nightmare incident.
Both Gagan and Birjit have been kept under police control while postmortem of the dead bodies was carried out in District Hospital, Bajhang, on Sunday.
Birjit is the father of eight children and Gagan has seven. The two alleged murderers had even killed buffaloes and goats kept in the shed after murdering the family members including six children.
Syadi VDC lies a day’s trek away from district headquarters Chainpur adjoining eastern border of Baitadi district. RSS
