The deaths of school children who consumed the mid-day meal in a rural Bihar school does not look like an accident, C M Nitish Kumar said.

 “This does not look like an accident,” said Nitish Kumar. “The children had pointed out that something was wrong with the food,” he said, and wanted to know why the food was still thrust on them.

“The accounts given by people, the forensic report, the concentration of pesticide (in the meal), all this points towards something,” he said.

The CM said police will probe all angles and the guilty will not be spared. “We believe everything will come to light in the police investigation.”

Without naming any political party, Nitish Kumar wanted to know why a 'bandh' was called when the children were being rushed to hospitals, and why police vehicles rushing to the site were attacked.
