Nitish Kumar's regime is under fire and Gopalganj police superintendent Swarn Prabhat today said they have set up a Special Investigation Team and were trying to find out the motive behind the murder of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Abdul Salam in Bihar’s Gopalganj district late on Monday. 

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi slammed Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar over the law and order situation in the state.

“Last year, in December, our Siwan district president Arif Jamal was shot dead. Nitish Kumar, after you are done with saving the chair competition, do some work. 

Why are only our leaders the target? Will their families get justice?” Owaisi wrote on X on Monday night. 

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi slammed Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar over the law and order situation in the state and asked were only their leaders the target.  

According to police, unidentified assailants had shot dead AIMIM leader Abdul Salam in Bihar’s Gopalganj district late on Monday. 

Salam, who is the second AIMIM leader to be killed in Bihar since December, had unsuccessfully contested the by-poll to the Gopalganj assembly seat in November 2022. 

He was on his way to catch a train when four assailants on two motorcycles fired on him as he was riding a pillion with a relative. 

Police said that Salam was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
