Nirmal: In what looks like Mumbai-style gang wars, three murder accused out on bail survived murderous attacks on Wednesday following police intervention when relatives of the family which was wiped out by them in May sought to take revenge in full public view at the communally sensitive Bhainsa town here.
In a ghastly incident on May 10th, an entire family in Bhainsa town was eliminated allegedly by Syed Sajjad and his companions. They were arrested and put behind bars. Upon being released on bail three days ago, they entered the town around noon on Wednesday ostensibly to vacate their houses.
Noticing them, close relatives of the victims of the family that was done to death, who had been itching for revenge, went after the trio with lethal weapons.
In the attacks that followed, Syed Sajjad, prime accused in the May incident, was stabbed on the left side of his chest, while his companions suffered serious head injuries.
The police entered arrived in the nick of the moment, saved the trio from being lynched, and brought the situation under control.
Syed Sajjad was taken to Nizamabad for emergency treatment. The other two, after treatment in the Bhainsa area hospital, were taken into police custody for protection.
Within minutes of the incident, many business establishments in the town downed their shutters sensing trouble. Students of many schools and colleges were sent home early as a precautionary measure.
Police reinforcements were sent to the town. It is understood that six persons were taken into custody for the murderous attacks. Bhainsa DSP Ande Ramulu and town CI Raghu are monitoring the situation “The accused carried out attack with an intention to avenge the murder of their family members. Sensing the situation, we were ready and could save their lives,” said Bhainsa DSP Ande Ramulu and CI Raghu.
