Man hurts 3 after water tanker dispute, arrested

Shivaji Nagar police said Rashid Ansari got into an altercation with Ghulam Aalbi and attacked him, his brother and father

A Govandi resident was arrested on Sunday for allegedly injuring three neighbours after an argument over parking of a water tanker outside his shop.

Shivaji Nagar Police said Rashid Ansari (29), who owns a general store in Bainganwadi, allegedly got into an altercation with Ghulam Aalbi (33) around 7 pm on Saturday.

"This being the month of Muharram, Ghulam had organised a takreer (sermon). The stage for the programme had been set next to Ansari shop. A water tanker was parked near the stage for convenience of participants and attendees, making access difficult for customers of Ansari. The shop-keeper objected and an argument erupted," said Radheshyam Agarwal, senior inspector.

In the heat of the argument, Ansari allegedly attacked Ghulam, his brother Mohammed and father Vaz-ul Aalbi with a dagger.

Vaz-ul and Mohammed sustained injuries to their heads and faces and were rushed to Sion Hospital.

"We have arrested Ansari and will produce him in court on Monday. Ghulam has also alleged Ansari barged into his cellphone repair store and forcibly took away Rs 11,000. But we will verify this," Agarwal said.
