In a possible case of gang war,the driver of erstwhile mafia queen,godmother Santokben Jadeja,and his friend was attacked in the early hours of Monday — allegedly by the kin of late BJP leader Keshu Nebha Odedara,in Porbandar.

The incident occurred at Kadiya Plot where Santokben’s driver Vanraj Malde Parmar had gone to visit his friend Sanjay Joshi. Parmar said the assailants came in four motorcycles and before they could understand anything,attacked them with pipes and sharp weapons like knives and swords.

He said the attack was in retaliation to Odedara’s murder. Odedara was allegedly gunned down by Santokben’s son Kandhal Jadeja and his supporters,two years ago.

Parmar has named seven people,including two sons of Odedara—Dilip and Ramesh,his brother Rama and nephew Sanjay,in his complaint. Parmar and Joshi sustained multiple injuries in the attack and have been admitted to the Porbandar Civil Hospital.
