Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar tests Covid-19 positive

Amid the ongoing hijab row in the country, Nitish Kumar, the Chief Minister of Bihar and Janata Dal (United) said that his party respects the religious sentiments of everyone and do not interfere in the way that anyone practices their religion or culture.

In his public outreach programme Janata Ke Darbaar Mein Mukhyamantri, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that if someone puts something on the head in a classroom, there is no need to comment on it. This is not an issue in Bihar and so, people should not focus on such things as they are useless, and the matter has already gone to court.

The Chief Minister further said that in Bihar schools, children wear almost the same type of dress. If someone puts something on the head, there is no need to comment on it. He told the people of Bihar that they do not interfere in such matters. He also told the public that the state of Bihar respects the religious sentiments of everyone. He said that in front of the Bihar government, everyone is equal.

The hijab controversy began when a few female students in Udupi were refused entry to a government pre-university. Protests erupted around the country as a result of this. Petitioners opposing the banning of hijab at government educational establishments have petitioned the Karnataka High Court to let them wear hijab that matches the colour of their uniforms, according to a recent update. Since Kendriya Vidyalayas, which are managed by the Centre, allow Muslim pupils to wear headscarves in colours that match their school uniforms, this argument arose.

The appeal was presented in the form of a note to the entire bench, which is considering a batch of petitions filed by Muslim females from pre-university colleges in Udupi who have been excluded from classes for wearing hijabs in purported violation of regulations imposed by a college committee.

Patna Police arrest couple allegedly posing as medical students and creating ruckus inside Nalanda Medical College

A couple was arrested on Wednesday by the Patna Police for allegedly posing as medical students of Bihar’s Nalanda Medical College (NMC). The couple, who were faking as students of the college, even created a ruckus when they were caught by the security guard.

According to the reports, a couple was sitting inside the campus late at night when the security guard approached them and asked them to leave. However, the couple began fighting with the security guard and refused to leave, claiming that they were medical students at the same college.

Following this incident, the security guard called the senior students to verify their identities. The seniors then claimed that the couple was not enrolled in their college, which led to a massive fight between them.

Prem Shankar Pandey, a security supervisor at the Nalanda Medical College, said when the seniors asked the couple to leave, the girl called some of her friends in their defense. The reports state that the girl’s friends reached the college premises with sharp weapons and pistols.

Soon after, the authorities informed the police about the incident. The police then intervened and stopped the fight. Panday said that on seeing the police, the men, who had arrived with some weapons, fled the spot.

According to the reports, the police have detained the couple and taken them into custody for interrogation. The police said that the girl is constantly changing her statements. Initially, she claimed to be a medical student, but during interrogation, she said she was a counseling student at a medical college.

The police said they are investigating the matter and will take action further.
