Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday ordered an inquiry into chaining of mentally retarded patients at an asylum run by a quack in Bihar's Madhepura district.

"I have ordered the probe to be conducted by the state Health Secretary", Kumar told reporters.

If the person ran the asylum without permission, then action would be taken, he said.
