Two persons, including a shopkeeper, have been arrested for allegedly beating up a student of Allahabad University in a clash that followed argument over a minor issue at Alopibagh market in Daraganj area on Friday.
The police had registered a case of causing grievous injury and rioting against three persons, including a shopkeeper, late on Friday, following a complaint lodged by the injured student, Akhilesh. "Jitendra Sonkar, the paan shop owner, and Sulesh were arrested on Saturday. Another person named in the FIR is absconding," said Pandey.
On Friday evening, one Dharmendra, a resident of Allahpur, had gone to Alopibagh market. He bought some items from Sonkar's paan shop. The two had an argument over change and Dharmendra was allegedly roughed up. Dharmendra called up his relative Akhilesh, an AU student, said the police.
Akhilesh, also a resident of Allahpur, his brother Vimlesh and around half-a-dozen other youngsters arrived at the spot and picked up a fight with the shopkeepers, who had gathered there. "Some shopkeepers then caught Akhilesh and Vimlesh, dragged them into a godown and beat them with iron rods," said Inspector Incharge (Daraganj) J N Pandey. Akhilesh was later rushed to a private hospital. The students damaged a couple of shops, while traders pelted stones at them. The situation was brought under control in about two hours.
