Ranchi: Former Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Prabhunath Singh was on Thursday convicted by the Hazaribagh Court in connection with the 1995 Ashok Singh murder case.

The quantum of sentence will be announced on May 23.

 

The case was related to the murder of Saaran's district Masrakh constituency MLA Ashok Singh, who was shot dead at his residence in 1995.
