APN reporter Arzu Baksh suffers injuries in Bihar mob attack

A mob attacked APN news correspondent Arzu Baksh with iron rods on Sunday in Maafi village of Bihar’s Nalanda district. The reporter has sustained injuries in the attack.

Baksh said he had reached his home in Maafi late last night. As soon as he neared the village marriage hall, he was surrounded by some 10 criminals, who attacked him with iron rods and some even hit him with butt of their guns. Villagers came to Baksh’s rescue upon which, the mob of 10 fired in the air and left the spot.

Accusing Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for not acting against culprits, Baksh said the morale of criminals has increased so much that they do not wait for the dark to continue their nefarious activities. He said journalists are not safe even in their home district of Nalanda then what will save the people from increasing number of crimes and criminals.
