Bihar: Altercation Over Parking Spot Claims Four Lives in Aurangabad, Police Dispels Communal Angle

In Bihar’s Aurangabad district on Monday, a dispute over car parking escalated into a violent clash, resulting in the death of four persons, three of whom were travellers from Jharkhand. According to Aurangabad DSP Mohd Amanullah Khan, the altercation occurred in the Nabinagar locality when a shopkeeper objected to a car being parked in front of his shop.

As tensions flared, an occupant of the car allegedly drew a gun and fatally shot an elderly bystander, identified as Ram Sharan Chauhan. This triggered an angry response from locals, who attacked the occupants of the car. Three persons from the car succumbed to injuries, while two others were injured.

DSP Khan said that despite involving members of different communities, the clash had no communal angle. He stated, “Although the incident involves members of two different communities, there was no communal angle to the clash. Nonetheless, adequate deployment of forces has been made to prevent any eventuality.”

The car, originating from Palamau district in Jharkhand, had occupants from the Hydernagar area. The dispute unfolded when the car stopped in Nabinagar, and its driver parked in front of a shop, leading to a confrontation with the shopkeeper. The situation escalated when a gunshot was fired, claiming the life of Ram Sharan Chauhan.

The DSP said, “The irate mob pounced upon the occupants of the car, hitting them with whatever they could lay hands on. By the time a police party reached the spot and dispersed the mob, Mohd Mujahid, Charan Mansuri, and Mohd Ansari had been beaten to death.”

Two injured ipersons, Vakil Ansari and Ajeet Sharma, were taken to hospitals for treatment. Investigations are ongoing to determine the shooter and identify those involved in attacking the car’s occupants.
