ONE PERSON died while another was seriously injured when a group of villagers attacked another group over a petty dispute in Gunga police station on Sunday. According to police, Shafiq, 35, a resident of Barri Bagraj village near Halali Dam, was stabbed to death today evening. His younger brother, Anees, got injured and has been brought to Hamidia Hospital.

The suspects, Malkhan Singh Meena, and the co-accused Hamir, Pappu, Guddu Mewati, Chand, Shahid and Vishal Singh, all residents of the same village, are absconding.

Malkhan was constructing a toilet on the field near his house and Shafiq was objecting to the construction on the plea that it was not Malkhan’s land. Shafiq alleged that Malkhan was encroaching the land. The dispute was on for the last couple of days. An argument took place between the two on Saturday as well.

Today Malkhan along with his friends attacked Shafiq, who received a fatal injury of a dagger in the chest and died. His brother who came to his rescue was also injured. SP Anant Kumar Singh rushed to the spot soon after the incident was reported. The village is located 20 km from the Gunga police station and falls under Raujia panchayat of Berasia.

Additional police force was rushed to the spot soon after the incident and the hunt was on for the accused. Shafiq had taken the field outside on contract-basis for cultivation. The fields of Malkhan are adjacent to Shafiq’s. Gunga police have registered a case against Malkhan and the other accomplices and started investigations.
