Bihar: An appalling incident transpired on Thursday morning when Basant Singh, Deputy Mayor of Bhojpur was shot by unidentified assailants.

It is said that the Bhojpur Deputy Mayor had good influence over the region and this particular reason might have been the reason for why the assailants tried to kill him.

Preliminary investigations into the incident are taking place. Bihar has been lately plagued with incidences of lawlessness where citizens have been gunned down in daylight without the police nabbing the culprits.
