High drama prevailed at a hotel in Attawa, when a group of seven people pelted stones and hurled abuses against another group on Friday allegedly over a land dispute.

Bal Krishan, a Sector-41 resident, alleged that Kesar Singh, Gurpreet Singh, Parvinder Singh, Labh Singh, Davinder Singh and a woman forcibly entered GK President Hotel in Attawa on October 12 and attacked him.

The complainant alleged that the six of them started pelting stones and bricks, besides hurling abuses.

The complainant added that the group also attacked his friends Mandeep Singh, Aman Rana, Rakesh and Sandeep Kumar, all employees of the hotel.
