AHMEDABAD: As the number of Covid-19 cases began rising again, fear of the deadly virus resulted in fight at two places — Shahpur area of the city and in Geratpur in Ahmedabad district — on Saturday.
In Shahpur, an Asha worker Bijal Patni was assaulted on Saturday night by her three neighbours, including two women, after a quarrel over spitting. Patni stated in her FIR with Shahpur police that she was cleaning her house on Saturday at that time her neighbour Savan Datania was gargling and spitting in front of Patni’s house.
Patni objected to it saying that spitting may cause the deadly disease. This did not go well with Datania, who along with her son Shyam and daughter-in-law Kavita began abusing and thrashing her.
Patni alleged that they had attacked her with stones and a bat due to which she began bleeding badly. Other residents stepped in and rescued her from the trio.
She was taken to a nearby hospital. Later she filed a complaint of assault and abetment with Shahpur police.
In Geratpur of Daskroi taluka of Ahmedabad district, a 48-year-old man, Nitin Barot, said that his neighbour Raju Patel and his nephew Yash Patel attacked him and his son suspecting that they were spitting in front of their house.
Barot said that the accused rushed inside his house with sticks and bat with an intention of assaulting him and his family members. He alleged in the FIR with Vivekanandnagar police that Raju and Yash were accusing them of spiting even though they take all Covid precautions.
Barot alleged that they thrashed him and his son first and when other family members tried to rescue them, the accused thrashed them also. In the attack, Barot suffered multiple fractures and his two family members also suffered injuries.
He approached Vivekanandnagar police and filed a complaint of assault, criminal intimidation and abetment against Raju and Yash.
