Earlier, he was found guilty of killing his political rival Ashok Singh. Today, the top Court was hearing the matter in context with the death of Rajendra Rai and Daroga Rai in March 1995. The Supreme Court found RJD leader Singh guilty of double-murder where Justice Nath stated that “We set aside the impugned order of the Patna high court and convict respondent no. 2, Prabhunath Singh, under Section 302 (murder) for the murders of Daroga Rai and Rajendra Rai. We direct the home secretary of Bihar and the director general of police of the state to arrest Prabhunath Singh and produce him before this court in custody on the next date of hearing to be heard on the argument of the sentence.”
