The family members said that Salim and Lallan are real brothers. Salim's daughter has been shot by Lallan and his son. It has been said that there is no dispute between them regarding the land; however, there was a joint account on which a case of partition was going on."
The DM added that the decision on partition came in 2013 and supervision was going on. However, one of the seven to eight parties involved in the matter appealed to the SDM for the execution of the matter. Following this a notice was given to all the parties was decided for further proceedings.
"However, the Lekhpal came to know that there is a stay order on the disputed property so no proceedings were undertaken today, after which the accused followed the victim to her house, where an argument unfolded between the two parties after which the shots were fired," he said.
