Five people were injured after a clash ensued between the police personnel and residents of Ramgopalpur Municipality in Mahottari district on Thursday.

Superintendent of Police (SP) of the District Police Office, Mahottari, Krishna Pangeni said that two police personnel, two Armed Police Force personnel, and a city police of Ramgopalpur Municipality got injured in the clash. 

The clash occurred after a dispute took a violent turn as the family of Dr. Pankaj Chaudhary prevented his spouse Neha Chaudhary from entering the house at ward no. 5 of the municipality. 

Neha had reached there following an order of the district court that ordered the family of Dr. Pankaj to let Neha enter the house. 

On the Mahottari District Court on December 12 issued a protective order in favor of Neha upon hearing a case on domestic violence and dowry against her husband.  

But, the house was padlocked as Neha reached there on Thursday. 

The residents on Thursday staged a protest asking the police and administration to create a conducive environment for Neha’s entry into the house. 

Repeated clashes occurred as the residents resorted to vandalism accusing the Mayor of Ramgopalpur of giving protection to the family members of Dr. Pankaj.   

However, the officials have said that agitations were not required as Dr. Pankaj has been held by police and investigations are ongoing on different cases including domestic violence as Neha has sought legal remedy.

Currently, the situation in Ramgopalpur is tense, and a large number of security forces have been mobilized.  

Neha’s parents had paid more than Rs 5 million to Dr. Pankaj when the two got married last February. However, Dr. Pankaj is accused of giving physical and mental torture and expelling Neha from the house seeking more dowry including a house in the capital city.
