Patna: Congress on Friday mounted attack on Bihar
Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi for giving a clean-chit to
slain BJP MLA Raj Kishore Keshari instead of waiting for
completion of investigation and asked Chief Minister Nitish
Kumar to remove him from the cabinet immediately.
"Modi has given a clean chit to the slaim MLA despite a
complaint of sexual harassment by the accused, Rupam Pathak,"
Bihar PCC spokesperson Premchandra Mishra told newsmen here.

Alleging that Modi is still trying to influence the
course of investigation, Mishra demanded that the chief
minister should either order a judicial inquiry or a CBI probe
into the case.
Mishra also castigated the BJP leaders for describing
Rupam Pathak as a `mentally unfit` woman and said "It is part
of the attempt to save the image of the party."
