Anand Mohan, who is serving a life sentence for the brutal murder of the then DM of Gopalganj G Krishnaiah, is currently out on parole. However, the Bihar government has cleared the way for his release, along with 26 other prisoners, by making changes in the jail manual.
The IAS Association has raised concerns about the impact of such a decision on the morale of government employees and the trust in the law and order system. Uma Krishnaiah, the wife of the late DM, expressed her dissatisfaction with the decision, stating that it ‘has hurt her’.
The BJP has also questioned the Bihar government’s decision, while the JDU has defended it. However, the release of a convicted criminal, especially one guilty of such a heinous crime, has raised serious concerns among various groups and individuals.
The IAS Association’s appeal to the Bihar government to reconsider its decision highlights the importance of upholding the rule of law and ensuring that justice is served. It remains to be seen whether the Bihar government will take heed of the concerns raised by the IAS Association and others and reconsider its decision.
