In a shocking incident, locals were seen attacking police who arrived to conduct a raid in northern India’s Bihar.
The incident took place in Begusarai district on May 21.
As per reports, the police had arrived at the place of incident to conduct a raid of alcohol. The people were returning from a marriage ritual ‘Matkor’ after which the police arrived to conduct a raid after receiving information about liquor being served. However, this angered the crowd and they started attacking the police. In an act to disperse the crowd, the police fired a round of bullets in the air.
“There was a Matkor event taking place at Bhagwanpur block when the joint team came there. They have picked a couple of men during the event and tried to take them away. A number of women were also present there. As their behaviour was not appropriate and they did not give valid reasons of arrest, the villagers became angry. Local police fired several rounds in the air. We have recovered a number of used cartridges from the place,” a village said.
The police have detained four men with respect to the incident.
