Haridwar, June 25
In a major brawl that became the talk of the town today, the police administration and local people had to calm down Bahujan Samaj Party legislator and Cabinet-rank Minister Sarbat Kareem Ansari and his family members to mutually settle the case as the legislator’s son injured three motor mechanics at Haril Lok Colony here today.
For more than two hours the Jwalapur police station became a place of action as hundreds of people siding with the legislator's family injured motor mechanics. The two sides tried to pressurise the police to file case against each other.
The incident occurred in the morning when 60 members of legislator Sarbat Kareem Ansaris’ family were on way to Mussoorie for a site visit when their bus broke down due to a technical fault.
Nearby motor mechanics were called on to repair the fault. In the meantime, some lady members in the bus alleged misbehavior by one of the persons standing with the motor mechanics.
Hearing this Rihan and Saif, sons of legislator, in no time aggressively attacked the motor mechanics Furkan,Gulzar and Fahim, injuring them grievously.
In the meantime, nearby traders arrived in support of the mechanics and attacked the male members of the legislator's family. Soon the police arrived at the spot, taking both the parties to the Jwalapur police station.
As heated arguments were exchanged between both the parties, there seemed to be no compromise in sight. SHO JS Pundir called SP City Kiran Lal Shaw and CO Shah Jahan Khan.
Meanwhile, legislator Sarbat Kareem Ansari too arrived fuming, and local political leaders and respected citizens were called on to pacify both the parties by the police.
Finally the legislator's family agreed to pay full medical expenses of the injured mechanics, while in return the mechanics apologised, though they made it clear that an unknown person was sitting outside their shop, and that they did not know who had passed the obscene remarks.
At last the issue was settled after a two-hour brawl, ending in a mutual agreement.
