Man ran over by tractor amid Gurjar community clash


On Wednesday, a man was allegedly mowed down by a tractor in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur district following a clash between two groups of the Gurjar community, police said. The incident took place in Adda village.
Bayana range Assistant Superintendant of Police Om Prakash Kalaniya said, “We received information at around 7:30 am in the morning that a clash had erupted between two parties belonging to the Gurjar community. I reached the spot along with the Station House Officer (SHO) and Circle Officer (CO) and found that, amid the fight between the two groups, a person died after he was run over by a tractor.”
A purported video of the incident that has surfaced online shows a man being run over by a tractor multiple times. The police official further said that several people were injured in the incident and were hospitalised.
The ASP added, “An FIR has also been filed on the basis of the complaint received, and further legal action will be taken accordingly. The tractor driver is yet to be identified, and his name will be revealed as soon as possible.”
