Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Six persons have sustained severe injuries after two groups clashed late on Wednesday night for domination in Kainchi Chhola locality of the city, sources said on Thursday.

The police have registered two cross cases under relevant sections of IPC and started investigation into the incident. The injured from both groups were undergoing treatment at a hospital in the city.

The incident occurred at Kainchi-Chhola locality of the old city. According to reports, Vicky Sardar, 32, along with his friends was returning home from a tea stall when a group of people reportedly belonging to Kuchbandiya family waylaid him and attacked him.
