Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday said full security would be ensured to all legislators and MPs in the state and also to the woman who killed a ruling BJP MLA in full public view in Purnia district.

"Effective steps are being taken for ensuring full security for the legislators and MPs," Kumar told reporters after a state cabinet meeting here.

Those meeting MLAs and MPs would now be frisked, he said.

Director General of Police (DGP) Neelmani has been asked to ensure adequate security for Rupan Pathak, who was beaten up by people after she stabbed ruling BJP MLA from Purnia Raj Kishore Keshari earlier in the day.

She is now being treated at a hospital in Katihar.

Stating that the incident was an "isolated" one and it should not recur, the CM said he has ordered a high-level inquiry into the incident.

"The inquiry report will unravel the truth," he said.

State police headquarters should review the security of MLAs and MPs and, if necessary, the security should be upscaled," he said adding any security lapse involved in the incident should also be inquired into.
