PATNA: A video of a ward councilor from Bihar holding liquor bottle on his head and engaged in “Nagin dance” has gone viral in the social media, prompting the authorities to order a probe.
The man in the eye of storms has been identified as Dinesh Kumar, councilor from Makhdumpur ward in Shiekhpura district.
In the video now viral in the social media, the man is seen as holding a beer bottle on his head and engaged in dancing, looking quite elated.
It’s not, clear if the video is old or was shot after the liquor ban was imposed in Bihar this April.
“We are investigating the matter. Action will be taken against the man if found guilty during the course of investigation,” a local police official Amit Sharan told the local media today.
Quite many politicians have been arrested in Bihar for keeping liquor post prohibition.
Barely two days back, a Janata Dal United leader Chandradeep Kumar Sen was arrested with 168 bottles from Nalanda.
Prior to him, brother a BJP lawmaker Sanjay Saraogi had been arrested from Darbhanga. Another JD-U lawmaker Manorama Devi too had to go to jail for the same charge.
