Darbhanga: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday justified public outrage against gang-rape of a girl in Delhi and favoured speedy trial in the case in Fast Track Court.
"The anger is natural," he told reporters emerging from a function here.
Kumar, who is senior JD(U) leader, said he was seeing "positives" in public protest as it would help create an environment against such heinous acts in the society.
Such wave of protests would help check social ills in the society, he said and condemned the gang-rape of the 23 year-old girl in a moving bus.
"Such an act suggests animal instinct of people involved in it...The incident has shocked the entire nation," he said.
Kumar favoured speedy trial in the case in Fast Track Court.
