Three people were allegedly attacked with knives inside Tis Hazari court complex on Saturday, after a judge reportedly ruled a property dispute in their favour, but police denied such claims, saying it was a minor scuffle.
The incident occurred outside room no 124, when Naresh Garg, his nephew Kishan and a friend Raman, were allegedly attacked with knives by his tenant Gayatri Devi's friends Vijay Khloi, Kaku and Pradeep Goswami for winning a property dispute.
"They have attacked my client Naresh Garg and his relatives with sharp knives as the judge correctly ruled in our favour," Garg's counsel Rakesh Bhalla told reporters.
However, police denied all such claims and said it was a minor scuffle between them.
"Garg, Kishan and Raman received minor injuries in the scuffle. We have registered a case and have sent teams to apprehend the accused," said a senior police official investigating the matter.
According to the police, Garg had filed a court case against his tenant Gayatri last month after she refused to vacate his house.
Gaytri reportedly told Garg that she too has a share in his house as she had signed an agreement with his late father, Lakshman Das.
