GREATER NOIDA(BADALPUR): Panic triggered in Greater Noida after a
clash occurred between two communities over a casteist slur made
between two persons involved in a road rage incident on August 29. One
of the persons involved is a resident of Dujana village. Six
motorbikes and a car were damaged in the incident. A panchayat was
later held to calm the situation. Sensing trouble, three units of PAC
were deployed in the area while the police have registered a case
against 77 people.

SSP Jyoti Narayan said that the police have also lodged a case against
one of the persons under the SC/ST Act. Cops said Karan Singh Jatav, a
native of Dujana, was on his way to drop his son Pramod at Maripat
railway station in Dadri on his motorbike. On Dadri GT road their bike
collided with another driven by Sachin Nagar and this led to a heated
argument. The enraged Jatav called his supporters and they thrashed

Nagar soon began to search for Jatav's residence along with his
supporters. "On Thursday morning, Nagar got a tip-off about where
Jatav lived and he rushed there with his friends. They misbehaved with
Jatav and his family and damaged six motorbikes and a car in the
process," said a police officer.

Soon, a war-like situation ensued and senior district police and
administration officials reached the village. Additional security
forces were also deployed. Jatav then registered a complaint with the
Badalpur police station citing that Nagar and his associates used
casteist words. The police have registered a case under the SC/ST Act
on 77 persons.
