Patna, Sept 8 (The Bihar Post/IBNS): The Bihar government has ordered a fresh inquiry into lift-trapping incident of the BJP President Amit Shah during his stay at the state house in Patna last year.

The commission to be headed by Shishir Sinha, development commissioner, who has been asked to submit its report within a month.

Shah had got stuck in the state guest house’s lift in the midnight of August 21 last year while he was going to his room located on the first floor after holding meeting with party leaders on the ground floor.

He remained stuck in the lift for about 40 minutes as its metal doors got jammed. Eventually, the security personnel and the party leaders accompanying him rescued Shah by break open the lift.

The BJP chief had come here to launch party campaign in view of the assembly elections in Bihar and had stayed at the state guest house when the incident happened.
