Abducted dalit family rescued in Bihar

Six members of a dalit family were rescued on Thursday from the
clutches of their abductors from Eknar village in Bihar's Nawada
district, a police officer said.

Acting on media reports and complaint of the family's head Diksha
Manjhi, the police raided a flour mill and rescued the six members of
a dalit family, identified as Arun Manjhi, his wife Pancholba Devi and
four children - Ganesh, Buddhan, Laxmi and Arti, police said.

They were abducted by local strongmen Chuna Singh and Biren Singh from
Collector Bigaha village five days ago apparently to teach a lesson to
Arun's relative who had failed to report for work at their farmland
after taking advance wages, he said.

The abductors had ill-treated the dalit family during confinement and
provided them meal just once a day, the police said.

The rescued family members have been taken to the office of a
magistrate for recording their statements under section 164 of the Cr

Raids were being carried out to nab the abductors who were absconding,
the police said.
