For hitting a man with a rod on his head who had acted as peacemaker during an argument over parking of vehicle outside a shop, the local court on Saturday awarded four-year jail to two residents of Darua village after holding them guilty for attempt to murder.

Additional district and sessions judge SK Sachdeva also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 each on convicts identified as Mohan Kumar, 30, and Shiv Shankar, 33, both residents of Darua village.

The UT police had registered a case on the complaint of Mohinder Singh, employed as a driver with Super India Heavy Transport Company, Darua, on October 3, 2014, after accused Mohan Kumar and Shiv Shankar had injured Shiv Krishan after hitting him on head with an iron rod.

As per the police, the incident took place when Mohinder Singh had parked his vehicle outside a scrap dealer's shop.
Accused Mohan had objected to this and had held him with his collar.

Shankar had later joined him, and the two started assaulting Mohinder Singh when Shiv Krishan intervened as peacemaker to save Mohinder. In the heat of the moment, Shiv Shankar hit Shiv Krishan with a rod in the head leaving him injured before fleeing from the spot.
