Fast track court judge Ravindra Mani Tripathi on Wednesday awarded life sentence to Rahul Kumar, a resident of Muzaffarnagar district in Uttar Pradesh, who had shot dead a commandant and a sub-inspector of the CRPF, Additional Public Prosecutor Vinod Kumar Singh said.

Kumar was part of a CRPF team that had been deployed here during the 2010 Bihar Assembly elections, he said.

He had applied for leave which was turned down by Commandant Rohit Raj Diwan. When Kumar misbehaved with him, he was reprimanded, Singh said.

On 9 October, 2010, Kumar barged into a room where Diwan was seating along with Sub-Inspector RN Pandey. The jawan sprayed the two officials with bullets from an AK-47 rifle, he said.

An FIR was subsequently registered at Shivsagar police station upon the complaint of CRPF Inspector Ram Lal, the additional public prosecutor said.
