BJP MP Sushil Modi has criticized the Bihar government for the release of former Lok Sabha member and murder convict Anand Mohan Singh, calling it an “unconstitutional and anti-Dalit” move that has created an atmosphere of fear in the state. Speaking to ANI, Modi urged the IAS association to speak out against the decision and file a PIL in the Supreme Court. He condemned the move, saying that many dreaded criminals have been released just for scoring political gains. On Monday, the Bihar government issued a notification for the release of 27 prisoners, including Singh. The move followed the amendment of prison rules by the Bihar government, which allowed for the release of 27 convicts, including the former MP. This decision has drawn criticism from various circles, including the Indian Administrative Service Association of Andhra Pradesh, who objected to it and urged the Bihar government to reconsider its decision.
Earlier, the widow of the slain District Magistrate G Krishnaiah, who was murdered by Anand Mohan Singh, objected to his release and appealed to President Murmu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and ask Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to send him back to jail. Singh was convicted of the murder of G Krishnaiah on December 5, 1994, in Muzaffarpur, and was sentenced to death by a trial court in 2007. However, the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment by the Patna High Court a year later. Singh challenged the verdict in the Supreme Court, but no relief has been granted, and he has remained in Saharsa jail since 2007. Singh’s wife, Lovely Anand, was also a Lok Sabha MP, while their son, Chetan Anand, is an RJD MLA from Bihar’s Sheohar.
