Police have arrested a man for allegedly attacking four persons including a Block Development Officer in the Bansdih area during the ‘Meri Mati, Mera’ Desh’ programme held last month. BDO Sanjay Kumar in his complaint alleged that he along with three others was in Baisari village with the Kalash Yatra during the campaign when they were attacked by two men, police said.


He identified the two attackers as Ramesh and Manoj Tiwari, of whom Tiwari has been arrested, police said.
