Police had to intervene and rescue a team of surveyors of a private company who were held hostage on Saturday, suspecting them to be "CAA/NRC surveyors." The incident is of a village in the district when locals held as many as 17 surveyors of a Lucknow based company on Saturday.

"Their company works for RSS. They have accepted it in a written statement," said a local. All those who were captured were safely rescued by the police.

"The people misunderstood them as team collecting data on CAA, NRC, etc. They have been safely rescued," said a police officer. "There seems to be some misunderstanding as the surveyors of a private company were held hostage by locals. An investigation is underway," said Babu Ram, SSP, Darbhanga.

Further, details are awaited (ANI)
