The proprietors who run an illegal alcohol making unit, punished labourer Aliyaar when he demanded his three month's pending wages to feed his family.
"Ram Singh Yadav and his brother cut my hand and I became unconscious immediately. I don't remember how many other men were present there... God alone knows how will I run my family now," said Aliyaar.
"There has been a fight between 2-3 people. The place where this incident occurred is an alcohol manufacturing unit owned by Ram Singh Yadav and Uday Yadav. These two men cut the victim's hand. Ram Singh Yadav has been arrested. Police is investigating the motive behind this incident," said Dr Mical Raj, Superintendent of Police, Garhwa.
He is being treated at Ranchi's Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) and may not be able to work for life.
The state government's indifference came to light when Chief Minister Arjun Munda said his state has the lowest crime rate as he was asked about this incident.
"As far as law and order situation is concerned or if we see national crime bureau's report, Jharkhand is in a very good state," said Mr Munda.
