Tejashwi Yadav demands 'High Court-monitored probe' in Munger incident

Addressing a joint press conference of 'Mahagathbandhan' in Patna on October 28, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav spoke on Munger incident.

Yadav said, "We condemn firing by police in Munger, in which 1 person was killed.

This double-engine government definitely had a role in it." "We want to ask Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi, who gave permission to become General Dyer?

We want High Court-monitored probe," he added.

One person was killed and several were injured after police allegedly opened fire following ruckus during a procession of Goddess Durga on October 26 in Bihar's Munger.

The police claimed that the person died when someone from the crowd fired.

Police resorted to baton charge on a group carrying Goddess Durga for the immersion.

The injured were rushed to nearby hospital.

Around 20 policemen also sustained injuries during stone pelting.

The police also recovered three 'desi kattas' (country-made pistols) with some live cartridges.

RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari has lashed out at the Congress over the Bihar assembly election verdict. The senior RJD leader said that many believe the Congress bogged down the Mahagathbandhan in the state polls. Tiwari said that while the Congress had put up candidates in 70 seats the party did not even hold enough rallies in the state. He said that while Rahul Gandhi visited for 3 days, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra did not make an appearance for campaigning. Tiwari further alleged that this is not something that has happened in Bihar alone and said that while the Congress is always interested in fighting many seats, it is not interested in winning. Tiwari said that while the political battle was underway in Bihar, Rahul Gandhi was on a picnic at his sister’s house in Shimla. Congress had ended with 19 seats in the state severely denting the chances of the Mahagathbandhan, despite the RJD ending up as the single largest party in the state.
