Ujjain: Shop owner beaten up by vendor


Ujjain: A shop owner, Rajendra Jain received death threats after being involved in an argument with a fruit vendor who tried to block the path leading to his shop. Owner of a savoury shop at Tower Chowk, Jain had been incurring losses in business because hawkers illegally placed their carts in parking lots in front of shops, completely blocking the way towards his shop, forcing customers to go elsewhere. Jain was beaten up by a vendor Arjun on Tuesday when he objected. Following the incident, Rajendra Jain registered a complaint at Madhav Nagar police station, claiming that he had received death threats from Arjun.
