The Station House Officer in Bihar's Kishanganj was cornered and killed by a motorbike theft gang.

During a probe into a theft case in Bengal, Bihar SHO was lynched to death by locals.

During a probe into a theft case in Bengal, Bihar SHO was lynched to death by locals. Ashwini Kumar, who was Kishanganj Town Police's Station House Officer, visited West Bengal searching for offenders of bike theft. The Indian Express reported that in the early hours of April 11, 2021, the SHO interrogated a few residents of Pantapara village after he discovered a stolen bike in the area.

One of Kumar's subordinates revealed that some mischievous villagers attracted a crowd by pretending the police officers were thieves. Shortly after, a large group of people lynched and smothered Kumar to death. Although eight police officers and two informants accompanied the SHO, the former narrowly escaped in their vehicles. So far, the police have arrested three residents responsible for the violent act.

The Bihar Police Association alleged that Kumar did not receive any support from the local Bengal police. A Bihar police officer accused the West Bengal police of dereliction of duty due to prior election commitments.

The following day, Hindustan Times reported that seven police personnel from Bihar were suspended, including a circle inspector, for police duty negligence.
