Patna: RJD staged a sit-in demonstration Jun 18 here in Patna and demanded the state government to order a probe by a sitting judge of the High Court into the Forbesganj firing in which four persons were killed and 30 others injured.

Leader of the opposition in the state Assembly, Abdul Bari Siddiqui, said the role of Deputy Chief Minister S K Modi in the firing should also be probed.

He said his party was in favour of an inquiry by a sitting judge of the High Court into the firing, besides providing immediate compensation to the bereaved families of each of the deceased.

RJD national Vice-president Raghuvansh Prasad Singh said the Nitish Kumar government had become insensitive and asked his partymen to continue their agitation to pave way for throwing the NDA government out of power.
