Gopalganj Superintendent of Police Swarn Prabhat said they had set up a special investigation team and were trying to find out the motive behind the murder.

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi criticized Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the law and order situation in the state. “Last year in December, our Siwan district president Arif Jamal was shot dead. Nitish Kumar, when you’re done saving the chair competition, do some work. Why are only our leaders targeted? Will their families receive justice?” Owaisi wrote in X on Monday night.

AIMIM spokesperson in Bihar Adil Hasan Azad termed Salam as an upright and non-controversial leader who is leaving his political mark. “We want the police to investigate the matter thoroughly.”
