49-year-old Jharkhand District judge Uttam Anand got rammed on July 28 by auto during his morning walk.
The murder was first seen like a perfect hit-and-run case, later turned out into a far more sinister act when CCTV footage emerged online and clearly showed that auto was coming straight towards the judge from a deserted stretch and to knock him down.
District Judge Uttam Anand was hearing many mafia killings cases in Dhanbad and had rejected bail plea of two gangsters.
