Personal fight between 2 individuals given communal colour in MP's Rewa
Bhopal, July 26 - A scuffle between two individuals, who were known to each other, over some personal remarks was allegedly given a communal colour with one of them alleging that he was attacked for supporting Nupur Sharma.
The incident was reported in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa district a few days back. The incident took place after two persons -- Mukesh Tiwari and Mohammad Suleman of the same village in the Baikunthpur area (around 35 km from Rewa district headquarters) -- met each other after a long time.
Mukesh had been a friend of Suleman's younger brother as they were room partners during their studies. Both started discussing their families, etc.
While their discussion was going on in a friendly manner, Mukesh asked the reason for the younger brother quitting his job. However, after a while the friendly discussion changed into a heated argument.
Suleman objected that Mukesh should not make comments about his (Suleman) wife and younger brother as they were friends. However, the heated argument turned into a scuffle, a police official, who is investigating the incident, told IANS.
During the fight, Mukesh's hand got fractured. Some locals intervened and separated the two. Subsequently, Mukesh reached the Baikunthpur police station and lodged an FIR against Suleman. In his complaint, Mukesh accused Suleman of beating him due to which his hand got fractured. He also alleged that Suleman robbed him of his money.
According to Raj Kumar Tiwari (Town Inspector- Baikunthpur), till then it was a case of a scuffle and snatching and the same was mentioned in the FIR. The issue was, however, given a communal colour after the victim went to Rewa to get better medical treatment for his fractured hand.
Sources said that Mukesh's brother Ashish Tiwari was associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Mukesh and Ashish decided to take revenge and linked the fight with the Nupur Sharma controversy.
Ironically, Mukesh, who in his complaint filed at the police station had accused Suleman of beating him and snatching his money, later told some local mediapersons that he was beaten up by a Muslim for supporting Nupur Sharma.
"In the FIR Mukesh alleged that he was beaten by Suleman. Both the parties are very familiar with each other as they have been living in the village for years. Despite being from different religions, the families had a good bond. But some people misled them. Tiwari found a better option to connect it with the Nupur Sharma episode so that police can take tough action against Suleman," said Raj Kumar Tiwari, TI Bakunthpur.
