An unusual and astonishing occurrence happened in Patna, Bihar when a person was shot dead for spitting paan in the Siwan area, according to an official.
On Sunday night at about 10 p.m., the deceased, a garment vendor, was killed down in his home in Purani Kila Pokhra neighborhood under Sarai police post.
The deceased was identified as Nawab Hashan, a Shamli native who worked as a street vendor in the Siwan area.
According to the police, Nawab was inside the residence making food and chewing paan in the morning. Nawab spits the paan outside the window, with part of it splattering on a passer-by, who then barged into the former’s room and abused him.
