Muslim man brutally assaulted after asking name

Kalam was travelling by bus towards Samastipur when the bus knocked down a bike and created a commotion. The assembled crowd asked the travelers to get down but Kalam stayed in the bus owing to his luggage being in the trunk of the bus. Some men came into the bus and asked him to get down but upon his refusal, they asked him his name and as soon as he pronounced they jumped on him and bashed him inhumanely. After bashing him, all of the perpetrators ran away thinking he was dead. Someone from the travelers informed his family members about his condition and they arrived at the scene and took him to Kartajpur Medical Hospital. The doctors there asked him to be shifted to Darbhanga Medical College Hospital since his condition was critical.
