Neeraj Paswan was attacked a few meters away from his home. The local residents rushed him to the Katihar medical college where he succumbed to multiple gunshot injuries.


He was allegedly involved in the murder case of Shivraj Paswan, a former mayor of Katihar district three years ago. Neeraj Paswan was recently granted bail.

Following the incident, Tar Kishore Prasad, the former deputy chief minister and local MLA reached the Katihar medical college hospital and consoled the family members of the deceased.

“It is a painful incident. I have personally asked the district police to take strong action against the accused and put them behind the bars,” Prasad said.

Meanwhile, district police arrested one of the assailants. They have also recovered four firearms from his possession.

“We are currently raiding several hideouts to nab the rest of the attackers. The interrogation of the arrested accused is underway,” said an official.
