PATNA: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today disapproved of comments holding people of a particular region or state responsible for terror attacks in the country.

"One should refrain from making irresponsible comments if burning problems like the terror attack has to be dealt with effectively," he told reporters when asked about Maharashtra Navanirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray's reported comments against north Indians.

Thackeray had reportedly said recently that terror attacks in Mumbai has grown due to increase in the population of the north Indians in the city.

Kumar, however, said he was unaware about the comments of the the MNS chief.

The MNS chief, who had reportedly made the statement in the wake of the recent arrest of two accused persons hailing from Bihar, had allegedly also asked investigators to pay attention to his contention.

Senior JD(U) MP Shivanand Tiwari expressed dismay at the "inconsistency" of the Anti-Terror Squad for showing the arrest of the duo Naqi Ahmed Sheikh and Nadeem Ahmed in the terror attack case on July 13, 2007, even as they were earlier shown to be arrested in another terror attack on July 13, 2011 and urged Union Home Minister P Chidambaram to find the truth of the matter.

"I have written a letter to Chidambaram urging him to intervene in the matter to clarify as to in which of the two terror attacks that the two accused persons from Bihar have been arrested," he said in a statement.

The Centre, he said, has till date not framed a policy to compensate those accused persons found innocent during trial of the case and their acquittal by court.
