The investigating officers came to know that the trio had protested against setting up of the den to sell liquor as their son has grown up and the people who visit the place create a lot of disturbance in the area after consuming liquor that hampers their son’s study.
The police came to know that three of the six accused persons were local residents and they had rivalry with the victim’s family. As a result, they had started beating them up as soon as the accused raised protest against setting up of the den.
