Patna: Two days after Chapra court was rocked by a blast injuring four persons, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said foolproof security arrangements would be made in courts of the state.

"Foolproof security arrangements would be made in all the courts after studying the condition of their building as every court has different structure," Kumar said.

Details like road leading to the court, boundary and pathways would be studied for making the security arrangement, the CM said, adding, special care would be taken for maintaining safety of courts against earthquake.

Kumar said that he had given orders to initiate step for ensuring foolproof security in courts after a detailed study of their structure.

"CCTV Cameras would also be installed to keep a watch over movement of people in the courts premises," he added.

The issue of security in courts has come to the fore after a bomb blast in Chapra court on April 18 where four persons, including a woman was seriously injured after the bomb she was carrying went off accidentally at civil court premises in Chapra in Saran district.

A bomb blast had taken place in Ara court last year in which a woman carrying it died.
