New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Tuesday, questioned the reported silence of Bihar Police over the alleged murder of a Muslim girl in Chandpura in Vaishali district. Taking to Twitter, Gandhi posted a newspaper clipping which claimed that Bihar Police ‘suppressed’ the matter pertaining to the incident of ‘burning a young girl’ in a case of a one-sided love affair, to ensure law and order during election season.
“Whose crime is more dangerous? The one who carried out this inhuman act, or the one who suppressed it to show law and order in a lawless land?” Gandhi questioned in Hindi.
The horrific incident
According to the clipping attached by the Congress leader, a Muslim girl, was allegedly set ablaze by one Satish Rai and two of his accomplices. According to the report, the accused had approached the girl for marriage. When she refused, citing that she belonged to the Muslim community, Rai along with Vijay Rai and Chandan Kumar dragged her away from her house and poured kerosene on her before setting her ablaze. The family members and neighbours rushed her to a nearby hospital, but she succumbed to her injuries.
The report, cited by Gandhi, claimed that the police officials kept silent over the horrific and gruesome killing of the woman in light of elections in Bihar.
Bihar faced the ballot in three phases which concluded on November 7. The election result was declared on November 10. The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) under Chief Minister Nitish Kumar returned to power in a closely contested poll which witnessed Rashtriya Janata Dal emerge as the single largest party with 75 seats, followed by BJP with 74 seats. Janata Dal (United) bagged 43 seats while Congress was reduced to 19 seats.
