woman undergoing treatment in a hospital here after beaten up
allegedly by some upper caste people and said his party would bear the

feudal forces. According to reports, Nagina Devi, who hails from a
backward class family, was beaten up with hot iron rods allegedly by
an upper caste family at Pokharpur in Nalanda hospital a couple of
days ago. Police named six persons, but one person had so far been
arrested in connection with the incident.
