Patna: Shop-owners and thugs of notorious builder Anil Singh in Patna on Thursday clashed with each other over a property dispute leading to the injuries over half a dozen people, including some women.
According to the report, Singh and his musclemen arrived on Exhibition Road to vacate what they called 'illegal occupants' on a piece of land allegedly owned by the builder.
It did not take too long before there was an all out battle between the two factions in which seeral people were injured. The angry mob then set Singh's Scorpio on fire and damaged several passing by vehicles.
Lathi-carrying cops from the nearby Gandhi Maidan police station arrived shortly only to worsen the already bad situation. They dragged shop-owners out of their stores and beat them up while ordering them to vacate the land immediately.
Only after some senior police officials arrived at the scene that the situation was finally brought under control.
Several people were taken into custody and being interrogated to verify their respective claims on the property in dispute.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
