A fight over a wooden ladder by two families on Friday claimed two lives, including that of a teenaged boy, and injured four others in the national capital.

Shamshad (36) and Chand Mia (18) died after a scuffle with the neighbouring family in east Delhi's Sahstri Park locality this afternoon, a senior police official said.

The families of Shamshad and Abdullah picked up a quarrel over wooden ladder this afternoon which later developed into a heated argument and scuffle.

Shamshad and Mia suffered stab injuries in the physical fight and were rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared them brought dead.

Four others who were injured in the incident were admitted in the hospital.

Abdullah and some other members of his family are absconding.

A case has been registered and further investigations are on.
