Bureaucracy Over Jurisdiction
Amid the horrific nature of the incident, a confusion as to who was supposed to take over the case arose. The district police officials and Government Railway Police both locked horns as to where the jurisdiction lies.
“The area falls under the jurisdiction of the GRP and not under limit of the district police,” a Kathihar police station officer was quoted saying.
