Last month, the audio went viral in which Anant Kumar Singh was heard giving the contract to kill a person. Earlier, a senior police officer said: "The house was unlocked in the presence of a magistrate with proper videography. AK-47 Rifle and other suspicious things have been recovered for which we have called Bomb Squad team from Patna. We are taking further action on it. This has been recovered from the house of MLA Anant Singh." According to the news agency, ANI, Anant Singh, however, claimed that he was being hounded because he contested elections against Lalan Singh. "I contested election against Lalan Singh that is why I am being hounded. Lipi Singh (Barh SP) has been brought to Barh to trouble me," he said.
