Andher Nagari: Bihar slipping back to old times?

Bihar MLA held for pouring petrol into youths’ rectums

In the badlands of Bihar Kidnapping for ransom was an ‘organised profession’  during Lalu Paswan days. So were blindings and murders.Rule of Law had ceased to exist.

     It was hoped that things would improve during Nitish period. They did, for some time. Now is Bihar slipping back to old times?

Gopalganj: JD(U) MLA Ramsevak Singh, his brother, three bodyguards and a driver were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting four youths and pouring petrol into their rectum at Asmat Gola in Bihar’s Gopalganj district.

        Singh is an MLA of Gopalganj’s Hathua constituency. Police said Singh’s bodyguards assaulted Afroz and Tabrez, relatives of a winner of the just-concluded panchayat election. On Tuesday, the bodyguards also beat Vishal Singh and Rakesh Dubey after taking them to the MLA’s house and poured petrol into their rectum. Gopalganj district magistrate Pankaj Kumar Pal and police superintendent K S Anupam visited the victims.

      Vishal and Rakesh were rescued by a police team from the MLA’s house. ‘‘The SP and I met the Hathua MLA and heard his version,’’ Pal said. The medical report confirmed petrol was poured into their rectum, he said. An FIR was lodged against the MLA, his brother Ramashray Singh, three bodyguards and a driver.

      Villagers said the wife of the MLA’s brother contested the election for the post of mukhia, but lost. Though police were yet to probe the motive, prima facie, it appeared to be related with the panchayat election, Pal said.

        The JD(U) leadership in Patna did not defend its MLA. ‘‘Wrongdoers will not be protected even if they belong to our party,’’ JD(U) state president Vashishth Narayan Singh told TOI.
