2 cops, man in clash  over bull taming

Two police personnel and a villager sustained injuries when miscreants hurled stones at police for not allowing bull-taming competition at Jade village in Sorab taluk on Sunday.

Police constables Chandra Naik, Prabhakar and Ramesh, a resident of Jade village, were injured in the incident.

The villagers had organised the bull-taming competition on the occasion of Deepavali festival. However, the superintendent of police denied permission for the sport. An argument broke out between the police and villagers and some miscreants hurled stones at the police vehicle stationed in the village.

The police resorted to mild caning to disperse the mob. The police took six people into custody in connection with the incident.

Two youths were gored to death and four sustained injuries during the bull-taming competition held at Talluru village in Sorab taluk last year. Following this, the district administration had banned the event.
