Around 25 to 30 armed dacoits targeted the house of a businessman in Bihar’s Madhubani district and decamped with cash worth Rs 20 lakh and valuables, police said on Monday

At least six people were injured in the attack that took place at about 1 a.m. on Monday in Saharghar village under the Saharghat police station located on the India-Nepal border.

Of the six people, two were police personnel. They were admitted in the Sadar hospital Madhubani and are out of danger.
