Vaishali firing not a repeat of Begusarai incident: Bihar Police

.Patna, Sep 19 (IANS) A day after an incident of aerial firing in Vaishali, Bihar Police's ADGP, Law and Order, Jitendra Singh Gangwar on Monday denied that it was a replication of the Begusarai shooting spree that left one dead and 10 others injured.

"There was a firing outside the house of ward number 1 councillor with two to three rounds fied in the air. No one was hurt in this incident. The preliminary investigation reveals that it could be a result of personal enmity. We have registered an FIR on the written complaint given by the ward councillor and the investigation is underway. The district police are scanning the CCTV cameras of the area to find some clues," he said.

The Vaishali incident occurred on Sunday night when unidentified goons fired several rounds in the air in a bid to terrorise local people. It was seen at creating a tense atmosphere like it happened in Begusarai when four bike-borne assailants opened indiscriminate fire on random innocent people on September 13. That incident put immense pressure on the Bihar government.

The statement of Gangwar came after Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh went to Vaishali on Monday morning and claimed that there is complete lawlessness and return of the 'Jungle Raj' in Bihar under the Nitish Kumar regime.

LJP-Ram Vilash chief Chirag Paswan also demanded resignation of Nitish Kumar as Chief Minister, saying that there is a "double Jungle Raj".
