Giriraj FIR

Patna, April 21: A fresh FIR was lodged against BJP leader Giriraj Singh today, three days after his alleged inflammatory remarks that those opposing the party’s prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, should go to Pakistan.

The FIR against Giriraj, the BJP’s Nawada candidate, was registered at the Airport police station.

Additional chief electoral officer R. Laxmanan said: “Instructions were issued to the Patna district administration to lodge an FIR against Giriraj Singh.”

Giriraj had made the controversial statement at the Patna airport on Friday before flying off to Jharkhand. He made similar remarks while addressing an election rally at Godda in Jharkhand the same day.

An FIR was lodged against him yesterday at Manohar police station in Deoghar for his statement in Jharkhand that Modi critics were pro-Pakistan.
