Bihar Police

Patna, Dec 3: Poor knowledge of English language of a Bihar Police man almost landed a youth from Jehanabad district in the state behind bars when policeman mistook a family court order for inquiry of asset as an “arrest warrant” and arrested him.

The incident, reported from the Makhdumpur Police Station of the district, has come as a big embarrassment for top police officials in Bihar. The man was released the next morning as soon as the police officials realised their mistake.

Neeraj Kumar, a resident of Makhdumpur Dih, said he was arrested on November 25 from his shop, “thanks to the poor knowledge of local police officials, who can’t even differentiate between a normal court order and an arrest warrant”.

“I made repeated pleas to the policemen that there wasn’t any arrest warrant against me. My lawyer also talked to the police, but they were not ready to listen to anything. I was forced to spend a night in the lockup and produced in the court next day in handcuffs.”

Neeraj said when the judge of the court came to know about it after reading the family court order, he slammed the police officials and ordered to released him immediately.

Jahanabad Superintendent of Police Pankaj Kumar said the family court had sent an order to inquire about the assets of Neeraj, but the local police officials mistook it for as arrest warrant.

“A probe is underway into how Neeraj was arrested and action will be taken against those found guilty because this incident has put a question mark on the functioning of police,” said SP Kumar.

A senior IPS officer of the rank of IG admitted that poor English is a big problem among lower rung police officials.

Misa Bharti

Patna, Jan 19: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Misa Bharti has said that she wanted to chop off Union Minister Ram Kripal Yadav’s hand when he joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

While addressing RJD workers at Vikram near Patna on January 16, she said when she “heard that Yadav is joining the BJP, then I felt like chopping off his hand…I was so angry inside”, reports in the local media said on Saturday.

Yadav, once considered close to Lalu Prasad and his family, joined the BJP in 2014. He contested and won the Lok Sabha poll from Patliputra constituency of Bihar defeating RJD candidate Bharti.
