Patna, Jan 10 (ANI): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said his government will fully cooperate with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in its probe into the murder of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Raj Kishore Kesri.
"The state government will fully cooperate with CBI in its probe into the MLA killing case... I will request that all aspects involved in the case be probed," said Kumar on the sideline of his 'Junta Darbar' here.
"The state government recommended to the Centre to hand over to CBI the case following demands from various quarters," he added.
Earlier on Sunday, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said: "Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has written a letter to the Centre recommending a CBI probe into the murder. I hope CBI will take over the investigation."
"The entire matter is with CBI now. If there has been any lapses, everything will come out clear. We neither want to shield anyone or victimise anyone. We have never victimised anyone. We have re-established law and order in the state and no one is above law," he added on the sidelines of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, which concluded in New Delhi on Sunday.
Rupam Pathak, a teacher in a private school, stabbed the MLA during his 'Junta Darbar' on January 4.
