Property dispute

Seven persons including four police personnel sustained injuries in a group clash over a property dispute in Tokalaghatta of the taluk, recently. There was a dispute over a land between Venkateshappa and Thimmarayappa over a land in the village. The matter was pending before the court, which ruled in favour of Venkateshappa.

Thimmarayappa and his relatives opposed Venkateshappa when the latter attempted to fence off the disputed land with stone slabs and with police assistance. A verbal dual graduated into stone pelting and the police who intervened were also not spared.

Anjinappa, Sriram, Sharadamma, Amaravathi and Chinnakka have been arrested in connection with the incident. Two cases - one lodged by Venkateshappa and another against assaulting police on duty have been registered.
