Sohrabuddin brother hospitalised after assault by VHP man

Rubabuddin told The Indian Express that he had gone to Yadav’s house to greet him on Diwali but the VHP leader objected to his presence in the Hindu locality.

RUBABUDDIN SHEIKH, brother of slain gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh, and his guard have been hospitalised after they were assaulted allegedly by a local VHP leader, Bhairulal Tank, and others in Nagda town of Ujjain district.

Both Rubabuddin and Tank, who runs a cow protection campaign, have been provided police guards. A case of attempt to murder, house trespass and rioting have been registered against Tank and 19 others in connection with the assault that took place around 4 pm at the house of Kundan Yadav, a tailor, on Monday.

Rubabuddin told The Indian Express that he had gone to Yadav’s house to greet him on Diwali but the VHP leader objected to his presence in the Hindu locality. He alleged that Tank severely beat him up and even fired in the air. He said his artificial leg got separated and he fell down. He and his guard are undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Ujjain.

Nagda Police Station in charge Ajay Kumar Varma said no arrest has been made yet and described the incident as a fallout of a property dispute. He said the house where Yadav lives has been purchased by Tank and the latter wanted to get it vacated. He said Rubabuddin’s intervention in the matter resulted in a fight.
