Nalanda (Bihar) [India], Oct. 21 (ANI): The Bihar Police arrested three people in connection with the Nalanda incident, where a man was made to spit and lick as punishment by the Sarpanch.

Earlier on October 20, Bihar Cabinet Minister Nand Kishore Yadav condemned the incident and assured that culprits will be booked.

Yadav's statement comes after an elderly-looking man was allegedly made to spit and lick his saliva off the floor as a punishment for entering the 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. (ANI)
