A 40-year-old man was killed and his cousin injured during a clash between two groups over a land dispute in Palson village here, police said today.
Mohan Shyam was yesterday killed and his cousin Sukhadeo injured in the clash, SP (Rural) Arun Kumar Singh said.
Maksudan had purchased a farm from Shyam and started cutting crops allegedly without paying the full price of the land to the latter, he said.
It led to a violent clash between the supporters of Shayam and Maksudan. On getting information about the clash, police reached the spot following which both the groups escaped, Singh said.
Police rushed Shyam and Sukhadeo, who were injured, to a hospital but the former died on the way, he said, adding Sukhadeo is undergoing treatment at a private hospital.
Cross-FIRs were registered on the basis of complaints by both the groups, the SP said, adding probe is underway in the matter.
