NAGAON, Nov 5: A land dispute in the Khutikatia area of Nagaon turned violent on Saturday, resulting in the serious injury of a young man named Hriday Bora.

According to sources, the clash erupted when one party, led by Vishal Agarwal, who recently purchased a piece of land through a bank auction, attempted to occupy the land. This action was contested by the other party, represented by Rupa Bora’s family, who had initially mortgaged the land along with a house to the bank for a loan.

Allegedly, the land was auctioned as the Bora family couldn’t repay the loan taken from Canara Bank, leading to the forfeiture of the mortgage and the subsequent auction. When Vishal Agarwal and his associates arrived to claim the land, a confrontation ensued, with the Bora family objecting to their actions.

The disagreement escalated into a physical altercation, resulting in a severe injury to Hriday Bora, who was reportedly attacked with a hammer by individuals accompanying the land purchaser. The injured youth was promptly taken to a local hospital and later referred to a medical facility in Guwahati for further treatment.

The clash, arising from conflicting claims over the land’s ownership, led to a regrettable escalation, resulting in severe injury and prompting legal action in the matter.
