Two hotelier siblings Sudhir and Nitin Agrawal, who were allegedly attacked and abducted on Monday by goons of a man squatting their land in Mohanpur village of Harda district remained untraceable on Tuesday.

Enraged over the police’s inability to find out the Agrawal siblings, the family members of the two brothers and other businessmen took to streets in Harda town on Tuesday. Agrawal’s family members, including women, also blocked the road in Harda town.

Victims had purchased land in Mohanpur village

The two brothers, Sudhir and Nitin, had purchased seven acres land in Mohanpur village some months back. However, the land was under the possession of one Jagdish Rajput.

Rajput approached a local court in the matter, after which the court nullified the purchase of the land by the Agrawal brothers. The court order was challenged by the Agrawals before the MP High Court, which stayed the lower court’s order recently.

Agrawal siblings went to Mohanpur village to settle the matter amicably with Rajput

Following the HC stay in the matter, the Agrawal siblings with their aides went to Mohanpur village on Monday afternoon to settle the matter amicably with Rajput, who had sown pulse crop on the disputed land.

Pankaj Agrawal, an aide of one of Agrawal sibling, claimed that when the Agrawal brothers along with aides started talking to Rajput, goons hired by Rajput along with his sons attacked the Agrawals.

While five of tAgrawals’ aides managed to escape from Mohanpur, despite being seriously injured, both Sudhir and Nitin were taken away by goons hired by Rajput.

According to the Harda police superintendent Prem Babu Sharma, a case of abduction, attempt to murder and rioting has been registered against Rajput, his six sons and unidentified men. While Rajput along with his two brothers has been detained for questioning, his sons remain on the run.

“We’re conducting raids and have got some vital clues after questioning of Rajput and his brothers,” the Harda SP said.
