ANI Photo | “Nitish Kumar’s USP of law and order is over”: BJP leader Sushil Modi on firing in Samastipur court

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Saturday slammed the Nitish Kumar-led government in Bihar over the firing incident in Samastipur court premises and said that such attacks show that Nitish Kumar’s USP of law and order is over.
“In this state, witnesses are not safe. A few days ago a journalist was killed in Araria, he was a witness in a murder case. If witnesses are not safe then the criminals won’t get punishment. Frequently coal mafia and sand mafia are attacking police. These frequent attacks show that Nitish Kumar’s USP of law and order is over,” Sushil Modi told ANI.
“Nitish Kumar has left Bihar to God in his quest to become Prime Minister,” he added.
This comes after two prisoners were injured on Saturday when four miscreants opened fire in Samastipur court, officials said.
According to the officials, the injured prisoners have been identified as Prabhat Chowdhary and Prabhat Tiwari.
The miscreants opened fire at the prisoners when the hearing was going on in the court. Following the incident, there was an atmosphere of chaos in the court.
“A few days ago in Samastipur Court campus, a mafia Prabhat Chowdhary was arrested and sent to jail after six months of consistent efforts and surveillance and with the help of a technical team. The hearing of his case was going on and he was present when four miscreants came and shot him in his leg. He is stable and didn’t sustain any major injury. Another person was also shot in the incident…We are looking for those miscreants and the security in the court campus has been increased…”Samastipur SP Vinay Tiwari said.
After the firing, the prisoners were admitted to the hospital while the accused managed to escape.
Further investigation into the matter is underway
