Nitish Kumar suspends Kishanganj jail superintendent as his MMS goes viral

Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday ordered the suspension of a jail official for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor girl, an official said.

"The chief minister has directed top concerned officials to suspend Kishanganj jail superintendent Kripa Shankar Pandey and lodge a case against him for his crime," said an official from the Chief Minister's Office.

During a meeting with top administration officials, Nitish Kumar also expressed his unhappiness over the delay in taking action against Pandey.

The move came after a video went viral on social media on Tuesday in which Pandey was allegedly seen sexually assaulting a minor girl.

Kishanganj Superintendent of Police Rajiv Ranjan late on Tuesday asked Sub-Divisional Police Officer Kamini Bala to probe the matter and submit a report.
