Araria: The CPI(M-L) Liberation workers on Thursday took law into their own hands and opened a road for public use on the land of the Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority (BIADA) in Bhajanpur village in the district, a year after it was closed by local authorities, an official said.
Carrying traditional weapons like bows and arrows, spears and tridents, the Liberation workers staged demonstration in the village to protest denial of justice to the families of those killed in a police firing last year, sources said.
They levelled the road with soil before throwing it open for public use, Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Vikas Kumar said.
The agitation by the CPI(M-L) Liberation workers passed off peacefully, he said.
Four members of the minority community were killed in the police firing in Bhajanpur village on June 3 last year on a dispute over the passage to the local people near the site of an under-construction industrial unit.
