Govt officer, village head found drunk in Bihar

Patna: Government officials and public representatives of Bihar who have taken oath not to consume liquor in their entire life, are found in drunken state these days.

One incident has been reported in Arwal district when an official of Bihar agriculture department, traveling on the car, rammed a Paan vend at Jay Bigha village under Mehandia police station on Friday evening. The Paan vendor, who was inside the shop, was injured in this accident.

“The errant driver of the car is identified as Pintu Singh alias Om Singh, an agriculture officer in Buxar and a native of Arrah. He was driving the car in a drunken state. During breath analysis, we found 151 points which confirms that he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident,” said Amit Kumar, SHO of Mehandia police station.

Pintu was returning from Dhanbad to his native place Arrah via NH 139 connecting Aurangabad and Arwal.
