According to sources, all the injured are said to be out of danger.
On the complaint of Naveen, whose family had been attacked, a case was registered at DLF-1 police station under relevant sections. “They came to our house, hurled abuses and threatened to us for filing a case in the court,” Naveen said, adding that the other family had even attacked his 70-year-old mother Rajesh Devi.
The injured were identified as Naveen, Krishan, Santara Devi, Rajesh Devi, Sunita Devi and Jitender alias Jittu. One of the neighbours had recorded the act on his mobile phone in which a group of people armed with sticks can be seen attacking the other family.
