Khagaria: Khagaria District Magistrate AR Ghosh on Tuesday said that he has constituted a three-member committee, headed by Additional District Magistrate to probe into `special treatment` given to convicted gangster-turned-politician Anand Mohan Singh. A photograph in which Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) strongman Mohan is flanked by his wife and son, Lovely and Chetan Anand was widely shared on social media. Mohan is serving the jail term for the murder of Gopalganj`s then DM G Krishnaiah.
Earlier on Monday, six police personnel were suspended in connection with the matter while the role of the jail authorities is also under the scanner.
While talking to ANI, Ghosh said, “We have constituted a 3-member committee, headed by ADM. It`s a serious matter. It will be difficult to say anything until this is verified.”
“If someone stays in a room reserved for someone else, it`s a matter of impersonation. If it`s found that security personnel were involved, action will be taken,” he added.
On Monday, BJP MP Giriraj Singh shared the picture of the RJD leader and took a jibe at the new alliance between RJD and JD(U) in Bihar and said that this is the power of “jungle raj” in the state.
