Bihar BJP leader accused of mowing down nine kids surrenders

After allegedly mowing down nine children in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, BJP leader Manoj Baitha has finally surrendered to police on February 28. An FIR has been registered against Baitha on the complaint of a local who lost his granddaughter in the incident.

On February 24, Baitha rammed his SUV into a government school building’s compound, killing nine children and injuring over 20. He was allegedly drunk while driving his SUV.

After the incident, which is a huge embarrassment for the BJP, the party has suspended Baitha for six years.

Apart from Baitha, there are 34 MLAs in Bihar assembly from the BJP with declared criminal cases at the time of contesting elections in 2015. The number of MLAs with serious declared criminal cases is 19, as per a report by ADR.

The status of Lok Sabha MPs from Bihar with declared criminal cases against themselves is also not very encouraging. There are 14 MPs from the BJP with declared criminal cases, while 8 MPs from the party have declared serious criminal cases.

The Rajya Sabha too is not immune from MPs from Bihar with declared criminal cases. Three MPs from the BJP have declared criminal cases, while 2 have declared serious criminal cases.
