Sources report that an individual was subjected to brutal assault allegedly for casting their vote in favor of Modi. The assault left the victim severely injured, necessitating hospitalization.

The victim's son, in his statement, recounted a recent altercation with the accused regarding the voting issue. Allegedly, the victim's father, Ramkishor Shakya, mentioned voting in support of Modi, triggering anger among the accused individuals. This anger led to a physical assault on the victim.
