Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday questioned whether any state has been able to prevent murders and said that linking them to law and order was like looking through a "coloured glass".
"Has any state totally stopped murders? ... Linking them with the law and order situation means looking at things through a coloured glass," he said, apparently referring to the Opposition`s clamour over the killing of a doctor here on Saturday.

The killing of Rajnish Patel by unidentified assailants in Bahadurpur area triggered protests with the Bihar chapter of Indian Medical Association, which threatened to go on strike if the killers were not arrested by tomorrow.

The Opposition BJP has alleged that it seemed the state was returning to the "bad days" under RJD rule.

Kumar said that the police would soon crack the case and establish whether it was caused by personal enmity or some other reason.

Condemning the killing, Kumar said that it was a personal loss for him as the doctor was close to him and he is keeping a tab on the investigation.

Stating that law and order was the top-most priority of the government, Kumar said the police were playing a proactive role and speedy trials have created a conducive environment in the state.
