Incidents of light bulbs or plants being stolen off the road might be common but you may have never heard of someone stealing the whole road itself. The case pertains to Kharouni village of Rajoun block of Bihar’s Banka district.
Villagers and people living nearby slept at night only to find out by morning that the only road connecting their village to the outside world had disappeared. They were out-and-out astonished to find out there were just fields with crop sown over the 2 km long stretch.
Initially, people thought they had taken the wrong turn and reached the wrong place.
According to reports, the thugs of the village of Khairani are said to have used a tractor to plow the road and sow wheat fields in its place, as stated in reports from the media. When the people of Khadampur village objected, the troublemakers retaliated by attacking those villagers and threatening them with sticks and rods.
Following the incident, a stir was triggered in the village. People started facing a lot of inconvenience as they used this road to come and go for years. For the past few days, the people of Khadampur village are now being forced to commute with the help of a footpath.
Around 35 people of Khadampur village have submitted an application to Circle Officer Mohammad Moinuddin on Wednesday regarding this matter.
