Patna, Nov 1(UNI)Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today recommended a CBI inquiry into the killing of a woman after her alleged rape by ruling JD(U) MLA Anant Singh.
Mr Kumar told newspersons here that after going through the report in a newspaper about the recovery of the woman's body and Mr Singh's involvement in the incident, he directed the Director General of Police to take suitable action.
Meanwhile, he got the information regarding the assault on scribes who had gone to Mr Singh seeking his comments in the episode.
Mr Kumar said a case had been lodged against the MLA who had already been arrested. He assured of an impartial action.
He said the role of the state government would be questioned in case the state police probes the matter as it involved the ruling JD(U) MLA. Hence he had reccomended a CBI inquiry. He also requested Union Ministers from Bihar to use their influence in instituting the central probe.
The chief minister said the government had also initiated action and maintained that law will take its own course. He said the administration will work without fear or favour adding no influential person would be tolerated taking law into his hand.
Condemning the attack on the scribes he said the health minister and health secretary had been asked to ensure proper treatment to the injured mediapersons and if required they would be sent outside Bihar for better treatment at government expense.
