Patna: Days after amending the Prison manual, the Bihar government on Tuesday notified the emission of 27 prisoners that triggered a massive backlash from opposition parties. 

Former Member of Parliament Anand Mohan Singh who was convicted in 1994 murder of District Magistrate G Krishnaiah among those who will be released. 

G Krishnaiah, then District Magistrate in Gopalganj District, was killed by a mob allegedly provoked by Anand Mohan. He was sentenced to death by a lower council in 2007. However, the Patna High Court commuted it to life imprisonment. Later, the supreme court upheld the High Court order in 2012. 

The Bihar government, earlier this month, removed the clause which forbade the remission of criminals convicted of murdering a public servant on duty. 

In its notification, the state government said that the new rules were for prisoners who have served an actual sentence of 14 years or 20 years with remission. 

The move to change the rules and Anand Mohan Singh’s release has created a huge controversy with Opposition parties like Bahujan Samaj Party and BJP terming the change as pro-criminals. 

BSP Chief Mayawati termed the Anand Mohan release as “Anti Dalit”
