Begusarai: Begusarai district deputy
superintendent of police Kamini Bala is being held hostage by
locals angry over the late arrival of police after the killing

28 year-old trader was stabbed to death by miscreants in front
of his shop last night, to clear the road blocked by the
locals this morning.

negotiating with the protesters to secure Bala`s release.
The protesters also damaged several vehicles at the
spot, the police said.
