Nitish and Sushil Modi conspiring against Lalu, says Rabri Devi


Thirty-two Bihar Military Police (BMP) personnel deployed at the 10, Circular Road residence in Patna, where Yadav and his wife live, were withdrawn late on Tuesday evening.

Amid row over withdawal of BMP personnel from the residence of former CM Rabri Devi, the state police headquarters has clarified that the security cover of RJD chief Lalu Prasad's family consisted of personnel more than what they are individually entitled for.

Rabri Devi feels that the action was part of a conspiracy to kill her husband Lalu Yadav, who is now serving jail term in connection with fodder scam cases.
