As reported by ANI, the incident took place in the Nalanda district of Bihar where the man had gone to the village chief's house and entered without knocking.

According to News Nation, it is also alleged that the man was beaten up by the women in the house who even threw slippers at him.

While Thakur hails from the Nai community and runs a barber shop in the village, while Surendra comes from an influential community.

Thakur went to Surendra's house when there was no male member present at the residence, following which he reportedly entered the house. Surendra said when Thakur entered his house, there were only women at the house - something he wanted the panchayat to take stern view of.
