"It's not a rule of law but that of mafia in the state," Rabri Devi, wife of jailed RJD president Lalu Prasad, said in a statement.
    
A look at state police website would reveal that more than 25,000 murders and 7,500 rapes had been committed in the state in the last eight years of JD-U rule, she said.
    
"Is this rule of law?" she questioned.
    
Rabri Devi, who is guiding the RJD in the absence of Lalu Prasad who is in Ranchi jail after conviction in a fodder scam case, said that extremely backward castes, dalits and Muslims are the worst sufferers.
    
She alleged that RJD workers were falling prey to the increase in the crime situation.
    
The RJD leader also claimed that party dalit cell chief Yogendra Majhi was kidnapped and later murdered in Arwal. In West Champaran district, party leader Mohammad Gazi was killed.
