Student detained for throwing sandal at Bihar CM Nitish Kumar-1Patna: A student protesting against reservation, hurled a sandal at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday, October 11. He, however, missed his target by a few metres, according to police. The incident occurred when the CM was speaking at a conference of the Janata Dal United youth wing called 'Virat Chhatra Sanagam', in Patna.

The student, Chandan Kumar Tiwari from Aurangabad, told the police that he was "suffering" as he was unable to get a job "due to reservation" because he is from the upper cast.

Tiwari was quickly detained by the police, but some Janata Dal-United workers still managed to thrash him before he was taken away.

Speaking to the media, Tiwari said that he was against reservation and has been protesting against the Nitish Kumar-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government in Bihar.
