Criticising the opposition for jumping to conclusions in the murder of a Class 12 student in Bihar who was allegedly shot down by a politician's son for overtaking his car, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday assured that action will be taken against the culprits.
Asserting that such incidents are not uncommon, Kumar said, "These types of incidents are everywhere. They are widespread."
He slammed the opposition for blowing the case out of proportion because the alleged culprit is a JD(U) politician's son.
"Maximum crime happens in Delhi. It's the national capital for all such incidents. But be it any incident, these people give an angle to it. Who is the person behind it, they highlight that more," he said.
"It could be anybody. There's no guarantee. Nobody can guarantee about any individual," he added.
He accused the opposition of giving an angle to every case that comes to light. "That's why these people are used to giving justification. Every incident is given a route so that they get to speak on it day and night," he said.
Kumar assured that the investigation into the case will be done without any bias. "Here, the investigation is strict and our job is to see that the law does it's job. The probe should only be on the crime committed," he said.
"During the whole investigation, if another suspect comes up, the probe will also be on them," he added.
He agreed that who did it is more important and said the government will catch hold of the accused. "Kanoon ke haath lambe hai. (The law has long hands. Nobody can escape it)," he said.
