Government sacks Bihar museum additional director after he thrashes director

PATNA: In a swift move, the state government on Sunday decided to sack Bihar Museum’s additional director Jai Prakash Narayan Singh within few hours after he allegedly thrashed museum director Yusuf inside the latter’s chamber after a dispute over a file related to recruitment of a person.

Art, culture and youth department principal secretary Chaitanya Prasad, while talking to TOI over phone, said Singh’s conduct was found to be unbecoming of an officer after urgent inquiry.

“Decision has been taken to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Within a day, all paper works would be processed,” Prasad said.

He said there was difference in opinion over a file between Singh and the director after which the latter was thrashed inside his chamber.

“Singh was associated with Bihar Museum for almost one and half years while Yusuf had joined as director almost six months back,” he said. Prasad also said that Singh’s four months’ contract was still remaining.

Kotwali police station SHO Ram Shankar said it was museum employees who informed police about scuffle inside director’s chamber in the museum.

“Police rushed at the spot and took Yusuf to New Gardiner Hospital for first aid as he was bleeding,” he said.

The SHO said Yusuf had received injury on his face from his broken glasses due to which he was bleeding.
