Greater Noida: A 22-year-old man who was in­jured in a clash dur­ing a cricket match on Wed­nes­day morn­ing suc­cumbed to his in­juries on Thurs­day. Sev­eral oth­ers who were in­jured in the fra­cas are un­der­go­ing treat­ment at a Greater Noida hospi­tal. Heavy se­cu­rity has been de­ployed in the area as ten­sion still pre­vails.

Two groups fired bul­lets and pelted bricks at each other in Jar­cha area of the city on Wed­nes­day dur­ing a cricket match.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the de­ceased, Mo­ham­mad Rizwan, re­ceived a bul­let to the head. He was one of five peo­ple to be in­jured in the clash. The oth­ers were iden­ti­fied as Naseem, Mo­ham­mad Arif, Waqil Khan and Umar Khan.

“Rizwan was shot on his head and was ad­mit­ted to the dis­trict hospi­tal in Dadri in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion. Later, he was trans­ferred to a Ghazi­abad-based pri­vate hospi­tal where he died dur­ing treat­ment,” said Kr­is­han Ku­mar Rana, sta­tion house of­fi­cer of Jar­cha Po­lice Sta­tion.

The po­lice said that the fight be­gan when one Iliyas fired upon Mo­ham­mad Ab­bas, an­other res­i­dent of the vil­lage. This quar­rel be­tween them led to a clash be­tween ri­val groups.

“Prima fa­cie, it ap­pears that the fight was to claim su­pe­ri­or­ity. Based on the com­plaint filed by Mo­ham­mad In­tezar, Rizwan’s un­cle, we have booked five per­sons un­der rel­e­vant sec­tions of the IPC,” said Rana.
