“The matter pertains to forgery. Those named in the complaint include people from top to bottom. I will not take any names”, complainant Sudhir Kumar, who is currently a member of the state revenue board, was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. However, when asked whether the chief minister has been named in the FIR, he replied “yes”.

Kumar, a 1987 batch IAS officer, is out on bail after spending three years in jail in connection with a job recruitment scam.

Kumar said he reached the Gardanibagh police station around 12 noon on Saturday and submitted a 35-page complaint before station house officer Ramanuj Ram. He alleged that the SHO abruptly left the police station with complaint papers after spotting CM’s name and returned around 4 pm. “Look at the state of rule of law in Bihar where an IAS officer is kept waiting for four hours. No FIR has been lodged. I have been simply handed over a receipt of my complaint...,” Kumar told PTI.

Patna superintendent of police, Upendra Sharma, said the complaint had been received. “Further action will be taken only after reading the complaint,” he added.

The chief minister’s office was not available for comment.
