Angry bird leaves mob thirsty for blood in UP.
IT IS well known that huge sums of money are waged on cock fights that even lead to frayed tempers. However, a semi- urban locality of Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur witnessed pelting of stones and a clash between two groups after a cock bit a person.
Three persons, including two police constables, were injured in the clash. Subsequently, the police detained the cock along with its owners.
The incident took place late on Tuesday evening in the Ludhaura locality of the Colonelganj police circle when a cock belonging to one Ramugrah bit one Gulzar.
Irked by this, Gulzar's friend Sunil chased the cock and hit it.
Noticing this, Ramugrah's brother Shera slapped Sunil following which a huge crowd gathered and started pelting stones at each other. Soon, women also engaged in a scuffle that added to the chaos.
After being informed, police reached the spot but it took them over an hour to bring the situation under control. Two constables and a home guard suffered injuries in the brick battle.
" It has become a daily issue.
His cock in is the habit of chasing people and biting them. A few days ago, a 10- year- old kid got injured after falling into a drain while trying to escape its attack. We had complained to Ramugrah several times but he turned a deaf ear," Kishore, a neighbour, said.
After the police nabbed Ramugrah and Shera, miffed locals gheraoed the police because they wanted the cock to be taken to task. " It appears that Shera has trained his cock to attack. We had raised this issue before Ramugrah many a times but he never paid heed," Urmila, another neighbour, said.
" Though no one has lodged a complaint, we have registered a case against the duo for disrupting peace," DSP Vivek Tripathi said.
