New Delhi, Oct 27 (UNI) An all party delegation from Bihar led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and demanded a judicial probe in the''brutal killing'' of a youth Rahul by Mumbai police this morning and said that Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) be banned for inciting violence against North Indians.
The delegation, which included RJD president and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad and LJP president Ram Vilas Paswan, BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi and Congress leader and Union Minister Meira Kumar, also demanded a meeting of the National Integration Council to decide about banning organisations like MNS and Shiv Sena which spread hatred and endanger the unity and integrity of the country.
In a memorandum submitted to the Prime Minister, the delegation demanded treason charges against MNS president Raj Thackeray saying his party should be banned by the Election Commission.
In view of the apathetic attitude of the Maharashtra Government, the Centre should direct it to take immediate action to protect the life and property of North Indians in the state, failing which there could be devastating repercussions in Bihar, the delegation informed the Prime Minister.
Condemning the encounter of the student from Bihar by Mumbai Police, Mr Kumar said efforts should have been made to apprehend the student instead of killing him as he did not do anything to harm the people.
He said though the Bihar Government could not inquire into the Mumbai incident, it would send Inspector General of State CID to collect information about it. He would collect all the information whether the ''encounter'' was necessary and why was he not apprehended earlier.
