"Officers are hand in glove with illegal traders (in Bihar). Now is being directly served at home," he alleged.

Referring to media reports of rats guzzling down a phenomenal 9.15 lakh litres of that were kept in police malkhana (stores) in since the ban came into being, Paswan said nothing could be more "ridiculous" than this.
