Police today recovered the body of ruling Janata Dal-United students' wing state general secretary, Rakesh Kumar from Alipur Pachuara village in Bihar's Nalanda district.
Acting on the information furnished by some local people that a body was found half buried, a police team reached the site and exhumed the body -- whose upper portion was buried while the leg was peeping outside -- which was identified as that of Rakesh Kumar's, a police officer said.
The body was sent to Bihar Sharif Sadar hospital for post-mortem, Sub-Divisional Police Officer Nishit Priya said.

Kumar's father-in-law Avinash Kumar, had earlier lodged a police complaint stating that Kumar was kidnapped from his house on May 29 when four people had come to meet him (Rakesh Kumar) and took him along with them but Kumar did not return home after that day.
