However, soon after Amitabh Bachchan's post on Facebook, Bihar police removed his image. Kaimur district's Superintendent of Police (SP) Umashankar Sudhanshu said, "We have removed the banner with Bachchan's poster from the only place in Adhaura block that it has been put up to educate the youths. I say sorry to Mr Bachchan for using his poster to motivate and educate the youths."
The police authorities had no malafide intention in using Bachchan's name and posters to educate the youths and said that it was done purely in public interests and not any commercial motive.
Kaimur police had decided to use the actor's name to educate rural youths in the backward and naxal-affect district since last month.
Hundreds of youths, mostly semi-literate, had attended the educational and motivational programme organized by the Kaimur police in Adhaura district.
