New Delhi (Sputnik) — A man in the Indian state of Bihar paid dearly after he responded to a group of unknown visitors who knocked on his door, disguised as Prime Minister Narendra Modi campaigners doing poll canvassing. Little did he know he would be welcoming robbers, says a report in Hindi news portal news18.com. The incident took place earlier this week on 5 May in the Siwan district of the state.
