Six hurt in clash

Mahottari, July 14:

Five rounds were fired in the air following a dispute over land at Parsapataili VDC-4 today. Six persons were injured when parties to the dispute pelted each other with stones and bricks, DSP Madan Kesri said.

Local Krishna Kumar Raut aka Biltu Raut had constructed a wall on the land of former VDC secretary Krishna Mohan Sharma last night. The clash ensued when attempts were made to destroy the wall. No human casualty occurred in the clash, police said.

Raut and Sharma had been embroiled in a dispute over the land for long.

Notwithstanding the verdict given by a court in Sharma’s favour, Raut went ahead and built the wall, police said.
