Youth throws slipper at Nitish Kumar in Patna
Patna : A 21-year-old man was beaten up by JD(U) workers and then detained by the police for allegedly throwing slipper at Nitish Kumar at a function in Patna. However, the slipper did not reach the Bihar Chief Minister and fell short of the stage.
The incident happened at around 12:30 pm at Bapu Sabhagar in Gandhi Maidan, where Nitish Kumar had arrived to celebrate the birth anniversary of Jai Prakash Narayan.
Minutes after he settled onto his seat, Chandan Kumar Tiwari threw a slipper at him, followed by another slipper.
Tiwari, a resident of Khairi village under Mufassil police station limits, was then beaten up by JD(U) workers and detained.
"I am against the discriminatory reservation policy that has been affecting upper caste youths’ chances of getting government jobs," he said while the police took him away for questioning. Patna Town Deputy Superintendent of Police Suresh Kumar said, "We have been questioning him. He looks mentally unstable. We are gathering more information about him."
