Can't it be "that he had involvement in the cruel murder of his wife."? Any suggestions?

Rito sheetal. But is it grammatical error?

Had involved means past perfect according to the sentence.

Doesn't the both sentence mean the same? he had hand is nothing but he had involved isn't it?

I do agree with edwin. Can anyone explain what is the difference?

I dont agree with answer here. Though sheetal answer seems more logical..gramatically we will write explanation here as "that he had been involved in the cruel murder of his wife."

If hand in should be used means, it should be followed by 'with'.
That he had hand in with the cruel murder of his wife.

No way the answer is correct. The word stoutly stands wrong. Answer "A".

Stout means a short fatty person.

It can be "he was involved".

Stoutly persisted? It's wrong!

Abhi said: (Jan 16, 2018)  
I guess, Either it should be, "he had a hand. " or "he was involved. ".
