10 injured in clash over political rivalry

 More than 10 people were injured after Congress workers raided the house of a JD(S) leader in Rudrakshipura village of Maddur taluk on Sunday.

According to the police, the Congress workers barged into the house of Kencha, a JD(S) leader and assaulted his mother and other women in the house with clubs. According to the complaint lodged by Savithramma, the mother of Kencha, the attackers snatched her gold ornaments weighing around 300 grams before fleeing the spot.

Political enmity is said to be the reason behind the incident. According to sources, there were heated arguments between the workers of the Congress and the JD(S) during the ZP polls held on Saturday.

Following this, Kencha of JD(S) and his accomplices had allegedly assaulted Raju of Congress on Sunday morning. Both the parties have lodged complaints and counter-complaints.
