Muzaffarpur: The Bharthua panchayat on Saturday decided to boycott the family of rape accused Manoj Kumar after villagers came to know about his involvement in the horrific crime in east Delhi. This decision was taken by members at an emergency meeting of the panchayat.

25-year-old Kumar is a native of Bharthua panchayat under Auraiya police station area of Bihar's Muzaffarpur district, about 50 km from Patna. He was arrested by a Delhi police team with the help of Bihar police late last night from the house of his in-laws in neighbouring Chiknouta village. Kumar was taken by Delhi police to the national capital on Saturday on transit remand.
