And there is more

McCluskieganj is a town in Jharkhand State, India, about 40 miles northwest of the capital, Ranchi. The town used to have a significant Anglo-Indian community at one time but this has declined considerably. It was founded by the Colonisation Society of India in 1933 as a homeland, or "Mooluk", for Anglo-Indians and was home to 400 Anglo-Indian families within ten years.[1] In 1932 Ernest Timothy McCluskie, the founder of the town, sent circulars to nearly 200,000 Anglo-Indians in India inviting them to settle there.[2] Of the nearly 300 original settlers, only 20 families remain, as most of the Anglo-Indian community left after World War II.[3] The town has lush green surroundings, dirt tracks and fresh air to breathe.

It's in Jharkhand and no longer in Bihar so it must be safe. Chainpur, the birthplace of a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, isn't very far off.

I had queried about McCluskieganj 2,3 months ago.... and i was told that, it was absolutely safe.
The place is awesome specially in spring time.. and there is a guesthouse type staying option.
