'Don't arrest Muslim youths under false terror charges', Bihar CM cautions ATS, Delhi police over indiscriminate arrests from the State

No more indiscriminate arrests!
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has expressed his concern over the indiscriminate arrests of Muslim youths from different parts of Bihar without informing the state police.

In the State Assembly, Kumar said that such arrests could create law-and-order problem. He said that it was improper for investigative agencies to use words like 'North Bihar module', 'Darbhanga module' or 'Madhubani module' that defames Bihar and links Muslims with terrorism.

Taking a strong exception to the manner in which Delhi police Special cell and Anti-Terrorism Squads (ATS) made frequent visits to Bihar, JDU supremo and state chief minister Nitish Kumar said that he would take up the matter at the central level.

At the upcoming conference to discuss the proposed NCTC, Nitish would raise the issue. The conference of Chief Ministers is being organised in Delhi soon. Of late, nearly a dozen youths from Bihar have been arrested from different parts of the state on charges of involvement in blasts.

In many of the cases it was later found that youths were innocent though. RJD leader Chandra Shekhar had raised the issue in the zero hour in the house. Replying to the query, the Chief Minister said that he understood the anxiety of the minority community and would strongly raise the matter at Delhi.
