Oct 29, 2020 17:08 IST

Amid opposition uproar and protests over the firing incident in poll-bound Bihar's Munger, the Election Commission on Thursday ordered a probe by the Divisional Commsioner in Maghad. As videos of Durga puja revellers being targeted by the police led to Opposition parties comparing chief minister Nitish Kumar to notorious General Dyer, the poll panel also ordered removal of the Munger Superintendent of Police, Lipi Singh, and District Magistrate, Rajesh Meena. An 18-year-old Munger local was killed after violence broke out iduring Durga idol immersion ceremony on Monday. The poll panel said the probe by Divisional Commissioner will have to be completed within a week.
