Patna: RJD chief Lalu Prasad and Bihar state Congress president Choudhary Mehboob Ali Kaiser on Wednesday demanded a CBI probe into the killing of ruling BJP MLA Rajkishore Keshri.

"The case must be probed thoroughly ... a high-level inquiry should be held or an independent inquiry or an investigation by CBI should be ordered to unravel the mystery behind the killing," Prasad told reporters here.

He said the inquiry should also take into account what prompted the woman to stab the legislator to death.

"There is something mysterious and it has to be uncovered," Prasad said.

Kaiser said the woman was alive and it would be in the interest of the investigation by an agency to go into what forced her to attack the MLA.

"Be it a probe by a judicial commission or by CBI, the facts should be brought to light," he said.

He also demanded review of security of the MLAs and MPs in Bihar.

Keshri was stabbed to death allegedly by Rupam Pathak in full public view at his residence in Purnia yesterday when the legislator was meeting visitors.
