Bihar govt urged to take action on Araria SP for Forbesganj killings
Minority groups have said that Superintendent of Police (SP) Garima Malik should be booked for murder, as a pregnant woman and a child had been shot dead in the brutal massacre that occurred after police began firing allegedly at a local BJP leader's instance.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said that a probe has been ordered but the judicial inquiry is yet to begin. Kumar who leads the JDU-BJP government avoided meeting the National Commission for Minorities chairman Wajahat Habibullah who visited the place on Wednesday.
Former union minister Ram Vilas Paswan who apprised Prime Minister about the gruesome killings, has also demanded tough action. The Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) wants that the SP and SDO be suspended and charged with murder.
Meanwhile, Muslim groups took out a protest march and reached the Governor's House in Patna. They were demanding a CBI inquiry into the incident and arrest of BJP MLC Ashok Agarwal, his son Saurabh Agarwal, SP Garima Malik, Sub Divisional Officer (SDO) Ashok Chaudhary.
The protesters said that a case of murder should be registered against these officials. The RJD, Communist parties, Congress and several other outfits have already asked for action on officials including the SP in whose presence victims were kicked and jumped upon by the policemen.
