Updated 19 Jun 2019 07:48 AM

The number of deaths due to the Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) has shot up to 135 in Bihar. The toll has climbed to 110 in the SKMCH and the Kejriwal hospital in Muzaffarpur district alone.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar who visited SKMCH hospital which has recorded maximum number of deaths in Muzaffarpur district on Tuesday, was faced with public anger.
 


Public grief gave way to outrage as angry people raised slogans against the Bihar CM asking him to go back. Kumar, who was away in New Delhi since Saturday, had returned to Patna on Monday evening and held an emergency review meeting on the AES situation with officials.
