Bhabhua: Villagers under Ramgarh police station in Bhabhua on Thursday went on a rampage destroying private properties and vehicles following the discovery of the dead body of a girl student from the railway track creating a sensation in the area.
When the police tried to step in, the mob pelted stones on them leading to injury to DSP Raghunath Singh in his head and causing injury to seven other policemen.
Situation became so violent that even the firefighters could not dare to approach the police station resulting in serious damage to the building.
The melee continued for nearly six hours after which DIG Rakesh Rathi and other senior officials arrived at the police station and used mild force to drive the miscreants away.
