The Kandivli police arrested two men for allegedly assaulting an 18-year-old in Kandivli (west) over a personal dispute.
One of the accused is his 22-year-old brother-in-law.
The teen, Usman Khan, lives in Bharat Seva Society in Gandhinagar area. He was at home on June 20. At 11 pm, the brother-in-law and his friend showed up in the locality. The two were creating a ruckus and yelling at Khan’s neighbour Shazia Bano.
Khan’s sister Nafisunnissa had eloped with one of the accused two months back, and his friend had helped them. Bano spilled the news to Khan’s family and this had given rise to a disagreement in the family. The accused held a grudge against her because of this.
Overhearing the commotion, Khan intervened and asked them to stop the ruckus. The men got angry and started abusing Khan and then assaulted him.
Khan sustained injuries on his nose. He was admitted at the Babasaheb Ambedkar Hospital and the police were informed.
The Kandivli police have registered a case of assault against the two.
