Subsequently, the judge disposed off the files concerning the case from the bonnet of the car parked along the road and passed the order for sending all the three accused persons to Bhagalpur jail.

Right now, the entire premises of the Naugachhia civil court is currently submerged in seven-eight feet of floodwaters for the past few days, badly hampering the court works.

The floodwaters from Ganga also entered the Naugachhia jail after which all the prisoners had to be shifted to Bhagalpur central prison.
