Condemning the attack on former union minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ravishakar Prasad on Thursday, Bihar Governor Buta Singh said he would get the incident thoroughly inquired into and perpetrators of the attack would be sternly dealt with.

"The goveror has taken serious note of the incident and will get the attack on Prasad inquired into and book all those responsible," a Raj Bhavan spokesman told PTI.

He said additional security would be provided to Prasad, who escaped with bullet injuries in an attack while attending a meeting at Nokha in Rohtas district.

Singh also directed the authorities to provide full security to political leaders campaigning for assembly polls in Bihar.
