On Thursday, a Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Raghuvar Rai was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Samastipur district of Bihar, said Police.
Mr. Rai was shot dead directly by two men on a motorcycle, when he was out on morning walk near his residence in Kalyanpur, said District Superintendent of Police Harpareet Kaur.
