In yet another shocking incident of apathy, an elderly man was allegedly made to spit and then lick his saliva off the floors as a punishment for entering a Sarpanch's house without knocking.
The incident took place in the Ajaipur village of Noorsarai block in Nalanda, the home district of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
The man had gone to meet the village head to avail a government scheme.
In an amateur video, the man can also be seen being beaten up with slippers by at least two women.
Condemning the Nalanda incident, Bihar Cabinet Minister Nand Kishore Yadav on Friday assured that culprits will be booked.
"I totally condemn this act and such incidents will not be tolerated in the state. We will take strict action against the culprits. The people of the state should trust BJP and its members. We will see to it that incidents like these never happen again," he told ANI.
