AIMIM Leader Arif Jamal Fatally Shot in Bihar's Siwan District

Patna: Arif Jamal, a leader of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), was fatally shot by unidentified assailants in Bihar's Siwan district on Saturday. Jamal, who served as the AIMIM's district president in Siwan, was quickly transported to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries during treatment. Authorities are investigating the incident to determine the motive behind the attack.

Ejaz Ahmed, spokesperson for the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), expressed sadness over the incident and assured that the district administration is taking stringent action against those responsible. "Our government has zero tolerance for crime. The guilty won't be spared and will be sent behind bars," Ahmed stated.

In contrast, Arvind Singh, spokesperson for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), alleged a return to "jungle raj" (lawlessness) in Bihar under the Mahagathbandhan government (RJD-JDU and Congress). Singh remarked, "When you have Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi as the Deputy Chief Minister and Nitish Kumar as the Chief Minister, we can see that 'jungle raj' has come back to Bihar."

This incident follows the killing of AIMIM's Asad Khan in Hyderabad earlier in 2021, who was hacked to death on a busy road in broad daylight. Authorities suspected Khan's murder to be a case of "revenge killing" due to his criminal history.
