Patna: While Nitish Kumar has personally ordered the arrest of those found to be consuming, selling, or transporting alcoholic drinks and their family members, it will be interesting to see how the police treats the arrest of Vicki Manjhi, the maternal grandson of former Chief Minister of Bihar Jitan Ram Manjhi who was caught hauling liquor bottles in Gaya on Friday.

As reported, Vicki was returning to Gaya in his car from Chatra in Jharkhand where he had gone to buy liquor since Bihar is a dry state. During a routine roadblock, the police found a dozen bottles of beer and a bottle of whisky in his car.

Vicki and his friend were taken into custody and later sent to jail.

Incidentally, this is the same Vicki who is out on bail on charges of killing his wife Soni Kumari last January. Her body was cremated hastily even before police or her parents could be notified.

Her parents had accused Manjhi's daughter and her son Vicki of killing their daughter because of their dowry demands.

The President of the Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM), an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), talking to reporters in Patna on Saturday, said that it was a conspiracy to malign his name but he had trust in the judiciary that would do the right thing by exonerating his grandson.
