In Bihar’s Nawgachhia, a group of angry people on Sunday allegedly attacked police personnel and journalist following the recovery of the body of woman nearly two days after she went missing.

Furthermore, the angry mob set fire to a police vehicle and assaulted journalists who were on the scene to report the news. Two journalists were harmed severely in the attack.

According to local reports, the situation escalated rapidly when villagers, upon discovering that the body of Shobha Devi, the daughter of Kamleshwari Mandal, had been found, accused the police of inaction. Devi had been missing since February 16 after she left home to deliver milk in Dakshinbadi Tola.

Despite her family’s desperate pleas, it seemed that no one listened until it was too late. The mob’s grief and anger reached its breaking point, causing them to set police vehicles ablaze and physically assault officers and journalists.

The surrounding was charged with unease as the police, who were outnumbered and under attack, had to resort to firing shots in the air to control the chaotic mob and restore order.

The injured were rushed to primary health centers and referral hospitals, highlighting the physical toll of the day’s events. 

Senior police officials arrived at the scene and managed to calm the situation down. According to a statement by the police, an investigation has been initiated, and individuals have been questioned.

Police further said that they have been camping in the area until the situation returns to normalcy. Police have been trying to recover the body of the woman. Local SDO and DSP were deployed for the task in that matter, the SP Nawgachhia, Puran Kumar Jha, said while speaking with the media.

In another incident from Bihar, three officers on-duty including a woman inspector were attacked by mob during an inspection to check the illegal sand mining.

The local police had seized as many as 50 vehicles involved in the illegal sand mining and had registered an FIR against 44 people.

There has been a huge decline in the number of people from Bihar coming to Mumbai, the country’s financial capital, in search of employment, Bihar Industries Minister Samir Kumar Mahaseth said on Monday. More than 15 lakh people have registered to live and work in Bihar, the minister added.

In Mumbai to attend the Investors’ Summit, Mahaseth said most people who returned to Bihar during the coronavirus pandemic have now found employment in Bihar itself. He said very few may have returned to Mumbai for their livelihood.

The Bihar government’s employment portal has seen 15,29,000 people register themselves for various jobs, and the age of a large number of them is less than 35 years. Not only to Mumbai, the number of Biharis returning to other parts of the country has also decreased, said the minister.

Mahaseth claimed the working people who returned to Bihar no longer wanted to leave their homes and had chosen to work in Bihar itself. “They want to stay in the state and create employment for others.” He said the Bihar government has come up with new proposals for 40,000 small-scale industries for its migrant labourers so that more and more people can be provided employment.

Mahaseth said the Nitish Kumar government wants to change the image of Bihar. “We are taking Bihar from consumer to producer. We are focused on developing clusters for areas within clusters also get a chance to be developed.”

He said the recent caste and economic survey conducted in Bihar found that the population in Bihar has increased, and many of them are people who returned to Bihar during the pandemic but did not return. People in Bihar now want to live with their families, he said.

At the ongoing Bihar Investment Summit in Mumbai, Industries Department Director Pankaj Dixit said with the increasing demand for energy, Bihar is aiming to become the number one state in bio-fuels. Bihar has received 33 applications for bio-fuels of which 17 have been approved and 5 have started functioning. He said the state is aiming for sustainable industrial development along with bio-fuel consumption. He said that Bihar has become the first state to approve bio-fuel policy.

In the investor meeting of the Industries Department, the Bihar government said all logistics support will be provided to companies investing in Bihar. Dixit said more than 40 investors have shown interest in investing in Bihar in the Mumbai Investor Summit, including industrial groups, Aristo, Alkem, Godrej, and Kamat. Dixit said he has invited many companies to the Global Investor Summit to be held in the state on December 13 and 14.

The chief minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar on Wednesday, went to inaugurate a ‘digital library’ in Banka district where he noticed the language of the signboard of the newly established ‘digital library’ and asked the officials to change the signboard as the information was written in the English language.

CM Kumar said he respects the English language but  Hindi is a part of the tradition. He further schooled the officials saying you are ending the importance of the Hindi language, adding that it is our language. Officials present at the moment were asked to change the board by CM Kumar.  

In March, Kumar made headlines for ridiculing a farmer who used English words in his speech at an event, demonstrating his consistent disapproval of the use of English in public settings.

Nitish Kumar reminded the farmer that using smartphones during COVID-19 was causing people to distance themselves from their own language in Bharat, Bihar.

Look at what has happened to people. They are distancing themselves from their language, Kumar interrupted, when people learn words through smartphones. Is it England, Kumar questioned the farmer. Your language should be used since you have been conversing with farmers in Bihar and Bharat, Nitish Kumar said.

As per the reports, the Chief Minister of Bihar carried out unannounced inspections at several government offices and discovered that a considerable number of ministers from his cabinet were missing in action. The observations revealed that while the majority of the ministers belonging to his party, JD(U), were present, a significant number of ministers from his alliance party, RJD, were found to be absent, the reports added.

According to reports, the development occurred amidst speculations that CM Kumar may switch alliances and join the BJP.

During the G20 event, the Prime Minister cordially introduced Nitish Kumar to none other than the esteemed US President Joe Biden.

It was worth noting that this was the initial encounter between PM Modi and Nitish Kumar following the latter’s party, JD(U), ending its affiliation with the BJP last year. Instead, they joined the Mahagathbandhan and formed a government with RJD and other opposition parties.
