Bihar lawmaker’s son beats up cook after he doesn’t like food served by him
The incident took place in Rohtas district on Tuesday
PATNA: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s claim of “good governance” has come under fire now.
While the government claims there was a “rule of law” in the state, the children of lawmakers are breaking the law with impunity. Rather, they have taken law into their own hands, so it seems!
On Tuesday, son of an opposition lawmaker badly thrashed a street food vendor in Rohtas district after he didn’t like the taste of the food served by the latter.
Police said Ankur Kumar, son of local Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) lawmaker from Sasaram Ashok Kumar, ordered a street food vendor to serve food at his father’s hotel.
However, when the food was delivered, the lawmaker’s son didn’t like its taste and instantly got infuriated. In a fit of rage, he called up the vendor at his hotel and assaulted him very badly, leaving him seriously wounded.
The victim has been admitted to a local hospital where his condition is said to be still critical. The police have registered a case against three persons on the basis of statement of the victim Rajat Kesari.
In the weekend, sons of Janata Dal United (JD-U) parliamentarian Baidyanath Mahto had been charged with thrashing a petrol pump owner in West Champaran district. Mahato is a Lok sabha member from Valmikinagar.
Past week, former Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) minister Renu Devi’s brother had assaulted a shop owner in the same West Champaran district just because the latter had refused to stand up from his seat to welcome him.
