After sending a team of officials to meet the family of the Madhyamgram gangrape and murder victim, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has now asked the family to come and meet him in Patna.
Appointment with Bihar CM was confirmed today, said father of 16-year-old victim who was gangraped and murdered last month.
“We have been called by the Chief Minister of Bihar. We will board the train tomorrow for Patna,” said the father. The family would return to the state on January 15.
It has been learnt that the victim’s family would inform Nitish about the problems they are facing in Bengal.
“The people, the media and the intellectuals are with us. Which is why we decided against leaving Bengal even when the Bihar government offered us to rehabilitate. We will fight for justice here. Without justice for my daughter, we would have never left Bengal,” he added. The family would also visit their village at Samastipur in Bihar.
Significantly, the Bihar government’s move to send a senior police officer to meet the victim’s family and offering Rs 1 lakh as aid was termed by Trinamool Congress leaders as “an interference in the issues of another state”.
Meanwhile, police officers investigating the case are yet to receive the DNA test report from the CFSL, Hyderabad.
