He said an approach road would be constructed to improve road connectivity to the village, besides Mahadalit families would get houses under Indira Avas Yojana (IAY).

A PCC road and a permanent police outpost would also be set up in Nepura, the Chief Minister said.

About 300 Mahadalit families had decided to flee Nepura village allegedly after they were terrorized by people belonging to the upper caste, who had killed one Arjun Yadav for daring to contest for the post of president of the Primary Agriculture Credit Society.
The incident had embarrassed the state government, as the Mahadalits were coerced to flee from their village located in the Gaya district, which incidentally is also the Chief Minister's home district.

Top district officials had met the fleeing villagers and urged them to return to their village on the assurance that adequate security would be provided to them.

The Gaya Police had arrested six persons on Friday last in connection with the Arjun Manjhi murder case.

Gaya District Magistrate Sanjay Agrawal on Monday said over phone that members of around 300 Mahadalit families have returned to their native village this afternoon.
