PATNA: Nitish Kumar-led Bihar government on Tuesday announced its intention to set up a high-level Committee to probe last week’s incident in which BJP chief Amit Shah got stuck inside an elevator at the state guest house here for nearly 40 minutes, before he was rescued to safety by security personnel.
A notification issued by the state Home Department (Special) said a high-level Committee has been set up under the Commission of Inquiry Act, 1952, to find out the reasons which led to the incident and suggest measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.
The panel, headed by Principal Secretary (Cabinet Secretariat) Shishir Sinha also includes Principal Secretary (Building) Deepak Prasad, Secretary (Energy) Pratyaya Amrit and ADG (Headquarters) Sunil Kumar as members. It has been asked to submit its report to the state government within a month. Senior BJP leaders had blamed Bihar government for its negligence.
