BELGAUM: A family dispute led to a violent clash between two groups from two villages at Mutaga village in Belgaum on Saturday.

According to sources, Rashmi (name changed) of Balekundri Khurd village in Belgaum taluk recently got married to a youth of Mutaga village. After marriage, her in-laws did not allow Rashmi to visit her parents. On Friday, Rashmi’s brother visited her and requested her in-laws to allow her to go home for Dasara. However, they refused and this led to a heated argument.

On his way out, Rashmi’s brother continued abusing her in-laws and this continued as he neared a playground. Some youths who were playing in the ground asked him to leave, saying they were getting disturbed by his shouting.  When he refused to budge, they started thrashing him. This forced him to approach the police, who allegedly neglected his complaint. In retaliation, a group of youths from Balekundri Khurd allegedly attacked the youths who had chased Rashmi’s brother from the playground.
