Bihar police have registered a case against 33 people, including Union minister for micro, small and medium enterprises Giriraj Singh in a land grabbing case in Patna.

The FIR was registered with the Danapur police station last week on a directive from the special SC/ST court of the additional district judge, Patna.The court direction came following a complaint lodged by Ram Narayan Prasad, 68, a resident of Asopur village, with the SC/ST special court. In his FIR lodged on September 13, 2017, Prasad had alleged that in all, 33 people, including Singh, a BJP MP from Nawada, had conspired to grab over 2.56 acres of his land.

Singh, in a tweet, reacted to the accusation, stating that he had nothing to say on the merit of the FIR. “Got the information about the FIR from Tejaswi’s (Bihar leader of opposition) tweet. It seems he is the architect behind the fiasco. I have nothing to say on the merit of the FIR, but will always cooperate with law.”

Earlier in the day, Tejaswi Yadav , son of RJD chief Lalu Prasad, had attacked Bihar CM Nitish Kumar for having allegedly aligned with corrupt politicians. In a tweet, Tejaswi reminded the chief minister that Giriraj happens to be the same minister from whose house crores of unaccounted cash was seized soon after he assumed charged as a minister.
