Kota, May 24 (PTI) A 60-year-old man was killed and his younger brother critically injured in a clash among the members of a joint family over a piece of land in neighbouring Bundi district, police said on Monday.
In the fight that occurred in Luhar Pura village under Dei police station in Bundi district, six other family members too suffered minor injuries, SHO Mukesh Yadav said.
The fight over 400 sq ft of an ancestral piece of land erupted on late Sunday night among four brothers one of whom was a lecturer in a government college, the second a teacher and the third one a lawyer, Yadav said.
The SHO identified the brother killed in the fight as Ram Kumar and said his 50-year-old younger sibling Ramraj Meena was critically injured and is undergoing treatment in a Kota hospital.
Five other family members injured in the clash were discharged from a hospital in Bundi, where the sixth member Hemraj, one of the four brothers, accused of starting the fight along with his wife, three sons and a daughter-in-law, is still undergoing treatment.

Though the police have booked a total of six family members on various criminal charges, including that of murder, none of the accused has been arrested till now. PTI CORR RAX RAX
