Row at public tap turns violent, 6 held

Hyderabad, Sept. 9: The Madhapur police on Saturday chased a seven member-member gang who were fleeing in a Gypsy after attacking three persons with rods and injuring them seriously. Six of them were arrested and two iron rods, one licenced revolver, three boulders along with the vehicle (Gypsy-AP 9 5367) were seized from them.

Madhapur Inspector S. Jairam told this correspondent that a copy of a land document in litigation at Miyapur was also found under the gang’s possession. “We cannot rule out at this point of time whether this gang is connected to land mafia in Ranga Reddy district,” Mr Jairam said. Giving the details of the incident, the inspector said the issue started near a public tap at Madhapur when two residents, Devender and Naveen, were collecting water from the tap. The seven-member gang who were on their way to a farm house in Hitec City stopped their vehicle at the public tap and removed the vessels of the two men placed under the tap.

This resulted in heated argument between the two parties which soon turned violent. Two of the gang members took out iron rods from their vehicle and hit Devender and Naveen, both students, on their heads. Passers by who saw this, alerted the residents who rushed to the spot with boulders, sticks and iron rods. Seeing them, the seven-member gang started to flee but the mob broke the windshield of their vehicle.

However, the gang managed to speed away but not before injuring another person, Anjaneyulu. However, the locals who ran after them came across Mr Jairam, who chased the vehicle and arrested the gang. The arrested were identified as S.K. Zaheer, Mohammed Jaleel, Hameed, Abdul Majeed, Syed Ghouse and Shammeullah, while Laiq Hussain is absconding.
