Bi­jnor: Five women in UP’s Am­roha dis­trict were on Wed­nes­day rushed to a hos­pi­tal af­ter they were in­jured in a fist fight, trig­gered af­ter a woman in­sulted the other over her fi­nan­cial con­di­tion to pur­chase onions.

It all started on Wed­nes­day morn­ing when Neha was bar­gain­ing the price of onion from ahawker in Am­roha’s Kalakheri vil­lage. Her neigh­bour, Deepti, who was in a rush of things, was also in the queue, rest­less.

“She is not fi­nan­cially ca­pa­ble to af­ford onions, don’t waste your time,” Deepti sug­gested to the hawker, quite loudly. The words did not go down well with Neha who shot back. The heated ar­gu­ment led to fist fight and blows as both the neigh­bour­ing fam­i­lies joined the brawl. Neha, Deepti and three other women were taken to a hos­pi­tal.

Later, six per­sons from both the sides were booked for the brawl. All the ac­cused were pro­duced in a lo­cal court and got bail.
