DM-Lynching Case: On Thursday i.e. April 27 morning, former Bihar MP Anand Mohan was released from prison, where he was serving a life sentence for the 1994 murder of IAS officer G Krishnaiah.
The Nitish Kumar government made changes to the prison rules on April 10 to enable his release, and the Bihar government released an official notification on April 24, which contained the names of 27 prisoners to be released, including Anand Mohan.
Anand Mohan, the powerful politician, who was out on parole to attend his son's engagement ceremony in Patna on Monday (April 24), received the news of his release during the event.
The Bihar government, led by Nitish Kumar, has made modifications to prison regulations resulting in the release of Anand Mohan, a notorious gangster-politician.
This action has caused a group representing central civil services officers to express their "deep dismay," as they believe that it is a denial of justice.
The Indian Civil and Administrative Service (Central) Association released a statement stating that the Bihar government's decision has led to a decrease in the morale of public servants, and they requested the government to reconsider its move.
Uma Devi, the wife of G Krishnaiah, who was the District Magistrate (DM) of Gopalganj in Bihar at the time of his murder by politician Anand Mohan Singh in 1994, has requested the President and Prime Minister Modi to take action on the matter.
Padma, the daughter of G Krishnaiah also conveyed her dissatisfaction with the release of Anand Mohan.
G Krishnaiah, who was known to be one of the most sincere bureaucrats of his time, came from a humble Dalit family in Mahabubnagar, Telangana. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1994 after he was assaulted by a group headed by Anand Mohan.
