Patna, 17 November (IANS) Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is facing criticisms over the inclusion of Meva Lal Chaudhary in his cabinet. A former senior IPS officer has written to the Bihar DGP demanding a detailed probe into the alleged mysterious death of Chaudhary’s wife.
Former Bihar cadre IPS officer Amitabh Kumar Das has made serious allegations against Chaudhary, claiming that the mysterious death of his wife Neeta may have been a political conspiracy with links to the alleged recruitment scam by Chaudhary.
Das took voluntary retirement in 2018.
Das said in a letter, I am aware of the mysterious death of Neeta Chaudhary. His death may be part of a deeper political conspiracy. His death is linked to the recruitment scam.
Former MLA Neeta Chaudhary was found in critical condition after burning at her house on May 27, 2019. After this, he died on 2 June 2019.
Das said, Bihar Police took prompt action on the mysterious death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. I am confident that Bihar Police will do the same in this case. I am expecting the Bihar Police to set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate it.
IANS has a copy of a letter written by Das to the DGP of Bihar.
On being asked that he had given DGP of Bihar A.P. K. On why he wrote a letter to Singhal, Das said, I have served in Bihar for 24 years as an IPS officer. It is my duty as a responsible citizen to point out wrongdoing in society.
Chaudhary has been given the responsibility of education minister in Nitish Kumar cabinet. He was sworn in at the Raj Bhavan on Monday along with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, two deputy chief ministers and 11 other ministers.
Mewa Lal Chaudhary is on target for alleged irregularities in the appointment of 161 Assistant Professor-cum-Junior Scientists in 2012. The alleged scandal came to light when he was the Vice Chancellor of Bihar Agricultural University in Bhagalpur district.
