Patna: Describing as 'unfortunate' killing of BJP MLA Raj Kishore Keshari, RJD on Tuesday demanded adequate security for legislators.

"The killing of the ruling party MLA is condemnable and unfortunate... we demand proper security for MLAs and even ex-MLAs," state RJD chief Ramchandra Purve, General secretaries Shakeel Ahmed Khan and Ramkripal Yadav told reporters.

Khan said the killing had exposed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's claim of better law and order.

Within two months of the NDA coming to power again, a ruling party MLA was killed and another JD(U) MLA Bima Bharati was thrashed by her husband seriously injuring her, he said.

"A new trend of crime has emerged and in the cases relating to kidnapping for ransom, three kidnapped schoolboys have been killed during the month of December", Khan said and alleged that it reflected that the state government had failed to put a check on recurrence of such incidents.
