Nityanand Rai hits out at Bihar CM Nitish Kumar over the killing of journalist Vimal Kumar

Nityanand Rai, the Union Minister and Member of Parliament representing Bihar’s Ujiyarpur constituency, strongly criticized Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in response to the killing of journalist Vimal Kumar. On Friday, Rai asserted that the state government was safeguarding wrongdoers and that the law and order situation had deteriorated under the leadership of Janata Dal United Chief Nitish Kumar.

Rai expressed his deep sorrow over the tragic demise of journalist Vimal Kumar, attributing his murder to miscreants. He conveyed his heartfelt condolences and highlighted the failure of law and order in Bihar. Rai emphasized that miscreants seemed undeterred due to the protection they received from the state government, as well as members of the JDU and RJD parties.

In response to Nitish Kumar’s statement regarding low crime rates in Bihar, when questioned, the Union Minister told the media, the Bihar government has completed a year in office this August, but more than 3,000 killings have occurred in the state during this period. The State BJP President, Samrat Choudhary, also condemned the JD(U) leader in light of the incident. Choudhary noted that criminals were roaming freely while innocent citizens, including journalists and even police personnel, were falling victim to violence in Bihar.

A tragic incident unfolded as four unidentified assailants shot and killed a 40-year-old journalist in Raniganj, located in Bihar’s Araria district, on Friday morning. The journalist, Vimal, had previously witnessed the murder of his brother in 2019. Elaborating on the incident, J.S. Gangwar, the Additional Director General of Bihar police, stated that journalist Vimal Yadav was shot by unknown assailants.

Upon receiving the news, the Raniganj police station dispatched the body for postmortem analysis. The Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) and a K-9 unit were summoned to the scene for investigations. Based on information from relatives, it was revealed that Vimal’s brother was also a victim of homicide in 2019, and his testimony had not yet been recorded as part of the ongoing trial. The relatives suspected this to be the underlying reason for the recent murder. The Araria police are actively conducting investigations at the site.
