The accused also attacked Naeem with a sword on Thursday evening, but the Chandan Nagar police station told a mutual dispute and registered a case on both the sides and sent it to the police station.
The incident happened around 5.30 am. Hundreds of tin sheds are built on the land of Kankar behind Green Park Colony in Sirpur. Most of the people living here are laborers, tailors, rickshaw pullers. Zahida Bano of Amravati (Maharashtra) also lives in front of 70-year-old Khurshid Bi, who lives in Basti, with sons Sikander, Karim, Sufyan, Yasin and relatives.
According to resident Sheikh Munna, a few days ago, Zahida took illegal possession near Khurshid Bi and built a tin shed. To grab the land, an iron pipe about 10 inches long was taken out towards Khurshid’s tapri and said that an equal part of the pipe would have to be left.
