New Delhi: In a gruesome incident being reported from Muzaffarpur district of Bihar, a female government engineer working with Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) was allegedly tied to a chair and burnt alive by some unidentified people at her home which she also used as her office.
 
The gruesome incident where the 42-year-old woman government engineer was tied to a chair and burnt alive came to light when the neighbours cried foul over stench coming out of her house.
 
The victim who had been separated from her husband for about 10 years had been living with one of her sons in a rented house in Bajrang Vihar colony of Muzaffarpur district which is about 65km from her husband’s house. 
 
Few days before the incident took place, the victim had sent her son to her mother’s house.
 
Police also recovered a suicide note from the house which was addressed to her mother which stated that no one is responsible for my death. The note recovered has been sent for forensic tests. However, police sources said that such a manner of suicide was very unlikely.
 
Further disclosing the matter, SSP Vivek Kumar said, “The victim, working as junior engineer in MGNREGA programme at Moraul block of Muzaffarpur, was tied in a chair at her rented home in Bajrang Vihar colony under Ahiapur police station and burnt alive.”
 
Following the incident, the house owner, Vijay Gupta, had been taken into custody in the connection of the killing of the woman engineer.
 
The victim’s colleagues are also been interrogated in order to elicit the motive behind the gruesome killing of the government engineer.
