Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Lucknow -

LUC­KNOW: A brawl over mango har­vest­ing turned vi­o­lent af­ter one group at­tacked an­other with sharp edged weapons in Mal­i­habad po­lice cir­cle here on Wednesday night.

Three peo­ple, in­clud­ing an el­derly man, were se­verely in­jured in the clash .

Ad­di­tional SP (ASP) Ru­ral Gau­rav Grover said the clash took place be­tween two part­ners Anil and San­jay, who had jointly pur­chased the mango or­chard for har­vest­ing and sale.

He said the two part­ners were of Bada­gaon vil­lage of Kakori, which comes un­der Mal­i­habad po­lice cir­cle. He said the duo had a dis­pute over sell­ing man­goes to dif­fer­ent peo­ple .

Grover said the two part­ners ini­tially agreed to sell man­goes jointly to cus­tomers and ven­dors. He said the clash took place when San­jay and his brother Vi­jay got plucked the man­goes on Thursday and sold them to dif­fer­ent cus­tomers with­out let­ting Anil know about it. An an­noyed Anil straight­way ap­proached San­jay and his brother on Thursday night and had an argument which turned vi­o­lent. San­jay, his brother and other aides at­tacked Anil with sharp edged weapons. In the in­ci­dent, Anil’s fa­ther Ram Chan­dra and his cousin brother Ab­hay were also in­jured when they turned up to res­cue him, he added. Grover said the at­tack­ers fled the spot leav­ing the vic­tims pro­fusely bleed­ing. Some other vil­lagers came to their help and took them to hos­pi­tal. He said the vic­tims were un­der­go­ing treat­ment while po­lice were car­ry­ing out raids in search of the at­tack­ers af­ter reg­is­ter­ing an FIR in the mat­ter. He said the case had been reg­is­tered against the two broth­ers and their uniden­ti­fied aides.
