Tensions flared in Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur district following a tragic incident that resulted in the loss of a man’s life. The incident, allegedly triggered by a bike collision, led to a fatal scuffle between two groups, leaving the victim, identified as Irshad, with critical head injuries. Despite heavy police deployment, tensions persisted overnight.
Hapur’s Superintendent of Police, Abhishek Verma, provided details of the incident, stating that police received information about an injured person, Irshad, near Luhari Market. The Bahadurgarh Police promptly responded to the scene, and Irshad was rushed to a local Community Health Center (CHC). Tragically, he succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.
The preliminary investigation indicated that a scuffle had broken out between Irshad and another group following a bike collision, which ultimately led to Irshad sustaining critical head injuries. Superintendent Verma assured that the situation in the village was now under control.
This unfortunate incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of peaceful conflict resolution and the need for communities to come together in times of tragedy.
In a separate incident on the same day, a clash erupted in Uttar Pradesh’s Mahoba district during a Durga idol immersion procession. The clash involved two groups from different communities. According to local police, the situation was swiftly brought under control in the Srinagar area of the district, and three individuals were detained.
The clash reportedly occurred when the procession was passing through the Srinagar area, and participants were playfully throwing colored powder, known as ‘gulaal,’ at each other. A member of another community was unintentionally affected by the colored powder, leading to objections and a physical altercation.
Mahoba’s Superintendent of Police, Aparna Gupta, assured that there was no significant law and order issue, and legal action was being pursued to address the matter. The procession later continued peacefully, and the Durga idol was immersed as planned.
