Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A total of 12 miscreants created ruckus over old rivalry at bus stop number 12 at Indira Nagar on the intervening night of Wednesday-Thursday, the police said. When a team of Habibganj police personnel reached the spot to tame the miscreants, the miscreants also attacked a police constable and left him injured. Three people have been arrested in the case so far, while nine of them are at large.
Habibganj police station house officer (SHO) Manish Raj Singh Bhadoria said 12 miscreants belonging to Vajpayee Nagar had thronged the spot to avenge the assault on some of their associates. When the miscreants were unable to find their rivals, they began vandalising vehicles and public property. The police were informed, who rushed to the spot. Several of the miscreants picked up rods, swords and baseball bats, and attacked a police constable named Mahendra Sharma, who sustained injuries in the incident. They also vandalised the Dial-100 vehicle by pelting stones at it.
