Administrative lapses led to doctor's lynching: Nitish

Jun 1, 2011 - 6:13:59 PM

The chief minister announced a compensation of Rs.10 lakh to the family of the deceased.

[RxPG] Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Tuesday admitted that administrative lapses led to the lynching of a doctor by prisoners inside a jail.

'There were administrative lapses behind the incident,' Nitish Kumar said.

Buddhadev Singh was beaten to death Sunday afternoon by some jail inmates in Gopalganj, some 125 km from Patna, when he went inside a ward to conduct a medical checkup of a prisoner.

According to a police officer, the prisoners wanted the doctor to issue them a certificate that they were ill and needed to be shifted out of the jail. But Singh refused, after which he was thrashed.

Nitish Kumar also blamed the jail officials. 'The incident was result of failure of the jail authorities.'

The chief minister announced a compensation of Rs.10 lakh to the family of the deceased.

All the government doctors in Bihar are on a day-long strike Tuesday to protest the incident.
