Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey asked for the suspension of a police officer who failed to recognise him and stopped him from entering the venue of a function in Siwan.
In a short video clip that emerged on Saturday, Pandey can be seen getting angry over the official stopping him and asking Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Jitendra Pandey to suspend Assistant Sub-Inspector of police (ASI) Ganesh Chauhan.
