According to NDTV, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) stated that the motivation behind the murder of the Secretary of Balika Vidyapeeth was to acquire the land and assets of the educational institution. According to the CBI, Anil Sharma, the Managing Director of Amrapali Group, along with Rajendra Prasad Singhania, Praveen Kumar Sinha, Shyam Sunder Prasad and Shambhu Sharan Singh, had betrayed the trust of the school.

Anil Sharma, MD of Amrapali Group had usurped the trust of Balika Vidyapeeth with the help of Rajendra Prasad Singhania, Dr. Praveen Kumar Sinha, Shyam Sunder Prasad and Shambhu Sharan Singh,” the agency was quoted as stating by IndiaBlooms.

The Secretary had been previously targeted due to his questioning of the school’s management, receiving threats and attacks, including damage to his house and being shot at prior to his murder, which occurred while he was reading a newspaper. The investigation was taken over by the CBI on the order of the Patna High Court.
