Jakanpur police reached the spot and took him to the police station.There was a shooting in this market six months ago – tradersLocal businessmen claimed that a van was parked outside the biscuit agency and its driver got into an argument with Bunty Kumar, the owner of the agency. The businessmen also accused the shooters of inviting them to the same conflict. Another trader said, “There was firing in this market six months ago and it happened again today.” We have repeatedly urged the local police to increase patrolling, but they are not serious about it. Traders are scared and are thinking of migrating from here. Bihar, we have closed our shops in protest against the incident.” Agitated traders also blocked the busy Cheritand flyover, leading to heavy traffic jams on nearby roads.

After the incident, Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Vijay Sinha visited the scene and targeted the Nitish Kumar government.‘Nitish Kumar handed over Bihar to criminals’Vijay Sinha said, “Nitish Kumar has become Dhritarashtra. He has handed over Bihar to criminals and is sitting silent. Crime is on the rise in the state and killings are the order of the day. People are killing in broad daylight. I am returning from Arah today. Where fearless criminals barged into the shop of a businessman and shot him dead and now this incident has happened in Patna which is a question mark of law and order, the authorities here are silent. And are dysfunctional.
