Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, reacting on the murder of a Class 12 student in Gaya allegedly by the son of Janata Dal – U legislator Manorama Devi and her criminal husband Bindeshwari Yadav, said such things happened in other states as well and there was no need to politicize it.
Saying the culprits will be brought to justice, Kumar said the only reason the opposition was making a mountain out of a mole hill was because the alleged killer happened to be the son of someone who belonged to his party.
"Such incidents are not uncommon and are widespread in other states as well. Maximum crime happens in Delhi which is the capital of the nation. These people (the opposition) always give everything an angle to highlight the case," Kumar, visibly annoyed by the spate of criticism against his failure to contain crime, said in a clear attempt to pivot the discussion from the high-profile murder to his number one nemesis Narendra Modi.
Shrugging off any killing, the Chief Minister said it could happen to anybody. "There is no guarantee. No one can guarantee about anyone," he said.
Promising to deliver justice, Kumar said that it did not matter who committed the crime because the law was blind and it was not possible to escape the law.
Meanwhile, police in Gaya took Bindeshwari Yadav and his bodyguard into 14-day judicial custody though Yadav's son, the alleged killer of 20-year old Aditya Sachdeva, the son of a businessman, remained out of the clutches of police.
Raids were being conducted to apprehend Rocky Yadav.
