In the evening of 11 July 1996, Bathani Tola in Bhojpur district of Bihar (India) started cracking with gunfire all around. The seven militiamen from Ranvir Sena entered the small village shooting down every human they saw. The headman and the founder of the militia, Mukhiyaji Brahmeshwar Singh was heading ahead carrying two AK-47 rifles, one in his shoulder and other in his right hand.
