In a pointer to the lawlessness in the city, two shots were fired in the air and two groups armed with rods and sticks clashed with each other in broad daylight in the CRPF Colony on Wednesday morning after an accident between cars of Dugri residents Monu Disawar and Simran Singh — both residents of Dugri.

Disawar and his aides Lali Sharma and Satish — were injured in the clash. They were administered first-aid at

the civil hospital and were discharged. Disawar is brother of Vikas Talwar and Amrish Talwar, both of whom have spent time in jail on murder charges. They have been acquitted only recently.

Simran is brother of Vikram Tiger. Tiger is allegedly a close aide of gangster Goru Bachcha.

Amrish claimed that his brother had been beaten up by henchmen of Tiger after a minor collision between cars.

“We were going to the police station to lodge a complaint when Tiger called me and insisted that we reach a compromise. He called us to a park in the Dugri area. When we reached there, Tiger and his brother, with two dozen accomplices, assaulted us and opened fire in the air,” he has alleged.

On being informed, additional deputy commissioner of police (ADCP-2) Sandeep Garg accompanied by force from the Dugri and Model Town police stations reached the spot.

Garg said appropriate action will be taken after recording the statements of the victims.
