Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government came under fire on Tuesday after the reports emerged that a CRPF official Indrajeet died due to delay in medical assistance provided to him.
BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad termed the incident as ‘shameful’ and demanded a probe into the matter. “It is unfortunate and shameful that a CRPF official kept pleading for help for two hours in Bihar but died helpless.”
Former Bihar’s deputy chief minister and BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi also attacked the Bihar government for its preparedness to handle such situations. Modi took to micro-blogging site Twitter in condemning the incident.
