HYDERABAD: An alleged illegal power connection causing frequent disruption in power supply triggered clashes between Rapid Action Force (RAF) constables and civilians at Alwal on Friday night.
While an RAF constable Ashwin Kumar charged that a locality man Rakesh and his friends raided his house and took away gold and cash, the latter too made similar allegations against the RAF constable's colleagues. Cases and counter cases were registered against both of them.
Rakesh, his friend Yadagiri and others went to the rented house of Kumar at Arundhatinagar outside CRPF Group Centre late in the night. They reportedly picked up a quarrel with him alleging that he was drawing power illegally and that it was leading to frequent disruption of power supply in the area. While Yadagiri charged that Kumar assaulted him, the latter denied the charges. "Rakesh and his friends hurled bricks and stones and damaged the constable's house," Alwal Inspector Krishna Reddy said.
Meanwhile, the constable's wife rushed and informed the other RAF constables that Ashwin Kumar had gone missing after he was attacked.
Angered over the news, a group of RAF constables attacked Rakesh's grocery store, threw out the goods, ransacked his house and damaged furniture. While Ashwin Kumar alleged that he lost Rs. 15,000, a gold chain and a mobile phone in the attack, Rakesh's father Babban accused the RAF men of taking away Rs. 1.5 lakhs and 15 tolas of gold from his shop and house.
