A Dalit youth of Khadak Municipality-4, Saptari district has been attacked to death for helping a person to file a nomination for an independent candidate in the upcoming local polls.
Santa Lal Paswan, 25, was thrashed to death for helping Mahadev Paswan to nominate for ward chairman’s position in the local polls.

Authorities must take action against the culprits.”
