It all started with members of both groups indulging in a verbal altercation. Soon, Sanjay Das from one group allegedly attacked Monoj Ghosh alias Bhundul and Virung Yadav from the other group with a pistol. “The two received head injuries and were rushed to NRS Hospital.
“They are both stable,” he added. Das (37) was later arrested.
