At least three persons, including a police officer, were injured on Wednesday due to a dispute that occurred between two groups in the Karedi village of the Rajgarh district in the state of Madhya Pradesh over land.
As a form of retribution for the battle, angry mobs poured upon the region and set homes and businesses on fire. According to Pradeep Sharma, the district superintendent of police, a Maruti van and two motorcycles were also lost. Both of these vehicles were destroyed. When law enforcement officers arrived at the scene, stone-throwing mobs had already damaged the Khilchipur SDM’s car and a police vehicle.
The police dispersed the crowd by firing tear gas shells at them while simultaneously calling for backup from other officers. As a result of the violence that occurred on Wednesday, there was a significant increase in the police presence in Karedi on Thursday. According to statements made by District Collector Harsh Vikas to the publication India Today, the situation is tense but under control.
After disagreeing verbally over land, a member from a different clan allegedly used an iron rod to strike another man in the face. This information comes from DSP Pradeep Sharma. When the families of the two men became involved, an accident occurred in which the victim’s brother was struck in the head with the iron rod.
The injured brothers are currently receiving treatment at a facility located in the Rajgarh District. After hearing about the conflict between the two sides, the mob assembled, according to DSP Pradeep Sharma, and then set fire to the attacker’s shop and his apartment before going on a rampage.
Firefighters could extinguish the blaze, and the situation was brought under control by the police. Nobody was wounded, and nobody lost their life.
Two of the brothers and the police officer who was hurt during the stone-pelting were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Both of these groups have been accused of committing a crime. Only four people, including the accused, his two sons, and his daughter-in-law, have been identified at this point in the investigation.
