Patna: On Monday, a youth allegedly tried to fling his chappal towards Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at a public interaction programme in Patna but was arrested by the police.

As the accused, a resident of Arwal district bent down to take off his chappal, he was immediately caught by a posse of security men.

Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj told reporters the youth has been arrested and taken to Sachivalaya police station for detailed questioning, the SSP said.

At 'Janata ke Darbar mein Mukhya Mantri' programme at the Chief Minister's residence people present their grievances and the CM directs officials to initiate action.

It emerged that the youth had created ugly scenes earlier too at the 'Janata Darbar' programme of senior BJP leader and former deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi recently.

The grievance of the youth was not very clear but officials said he was apparently angry over the state government's recent advisory against use of fire for cooking and hawan etc between 9 am to 6 pm to curb increasing incidents of fire.
