Patna: Raking up the issue of threatening call received by him, RJD MLA Dinesh Prasad Singh on Tuesday created a flutter in Bihar assembly alleging that the state police was "soft-pedalling" the case.

Raising the issue during zero-hour, Singh, MLA from Jagdishpur in Bhojpur district, claimed that he had received a call over his mobile threatening to eliminate him within next 48 hours and sought adequate security protection.

His party colleagues stood in their seat in support and expressed serious concern over the matter.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who was present in the House, soon intervened and said he was seized of the matter and had directed the Director General of Police Neelmani to get the matter thoroughly inquired into.

"The state government has taken serious note of the complaint and will take whatever possible step required to be taken in this connection+, he said.

Kumar rubbished the RJD MLA's charge that the state government was "soft" in its attitude towards handing the complaint of opposition members while it took immediate step to punish the caller in the case of the state Health Minister Ashwini Choubey.

"We don't discriminate against anyone irrespective of their stature.. everybody is equal in the eye of law," Kumar said.

Meanwhile, police has registered an FIR against an unknown person in connection with the call.

"We have taken all-possible steps to identify the caller and bring him to justice," Neelmani added.
