Jamshedpur, Oct. 28: Eight people were injured as two families came to blows after a stone lifting incident at Jhagru Bagan in Adarshnagar, Manifit, under Telco Police Station on Wednesday.
Among the injured, three men and three women belonged to one family, while two others were from a neighboring family. The injured were rushed to the MGM Hospital.
Trouble began following a controversy between the two families on Tuesday night in relation to stone lifting which led to members of both the families attacking each other with iron rods and sticks.
Those injured include Rajaram Singh, who said that that they had brought some bricks from a relative Sivnath Prasad for some construction work. This led Shivnath Prasad and Guddu Prasad abusing Singh and his family members on Tuesday night, but the matter was somehow settled then.
On Wednesday morning, Prasad along with 10 to 12 men attacked members of Singh�s family with iron rods, pipes and sticks injuring three women and men. The injured include Rajaram Singh, Birendra Singh, Kishore Singh, Reeta Singh and Sunita Singh. During the clash, Shivnath Prasad and Guddu Prasad from the neighboring family also sustained injuries.
According to Telco police station in-charge, Rajaram Singh and Shivnath Prasad are natives of the same village and are relatives too.
Both the families had an old dispute over a land in their village. Police further informed that on Tuesday evening a stone lifting incident from near Shivnath Prasad’s house led to the assault. Both the families have registered separate FIRs with the Telco police station.
