As many as 11 persons were booked in two separate incidents - for attacking a couple, and a member of the Ramdasia community - on Sunday.

Jeet Singh, a resident of Sonti village, in his complaint to the police said that he was ploughing his field when seven of the accused attacked him and his wife.

Claiming that the accused fled the scene when the couple cried for help, Jeet Singh said people nearby admitted them at the civil hospital. He added that there was a land dispute case pending in the court against the accused.

A case was registered against Jagdish Singh alias Gogi, Sudarshan Singh, Gurdev Singh and his son Kuldeep Singh, Harvinder Singh, Gurmeet Kaur, Ranjit Kaur and Sukhchain Singh under sections 325 (punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt.), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 149 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed in prosecution of common object), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation.) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). However, no arrests have been made in the case.

In another case, Gurjant Singh, a resident of Ramgarh village, complained to the police that three accused - Roop Singh, Basant Singh and Ravi, all residents of the same locality - attacked him with sharp-edged weapons. He had also been admitted to the civil hospital at Amloh.

Gurjant Singh said the incident occurred when he was returning home at about 9 pm. The three used foul language against him on "a petty issue" and attacked him when he tried to stop them. The police have registered a case against the accused under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC.
