Gurgaon village tense after cattle lifters kill man
Sunday August 25, 2013 6:49 PM, IANS

Police opened fire in the air in an attempt to disperse hundreds of villagers, who torched vehicles and broke windowpanes of passing trains as they blocked roads and the Delhi-Rewari rail route in the Pataudi area Sunday to protest a man's murder by cattle thieves.

Over half a dozen policemen were injured in the clashes. The condition of two of them was stated to be critical.

Vikrant Singh Yadav, a resident of Khwaspur village, was killed as he was trying to chase the vehicle of the cattle lifters. The 25-year-old youth worked with a bank in Noida.

Villagers hit out at alleged negligence and inaction of the police against cattle thieves, who have been active in the area for the last few years.

Heavy police force has been deployed in the area.

"The situation was very tense but is now under control. We are trying to restore rail as well as road traffic," Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Rahul Sharma told IANS.
