Etawah: Four policemen were on Wednesday injured and their jeep damaged when residents of a village indulged in brick-batting after they arrived there to probe a
case.

A police team comprising a sub-Inspector and three
constables had gone to Banamai village in Bharthana area in
connection with a case when the villagers indulged in
brick-batting, a police official said.

On March 22, Dilip (22) and Bhuri Devi (18) of the same
village had eloped and later approached a local court fearing
attack on them by their relatives.

The court directed the villagers to allow them to live
together but yesterday the girl`s family pressurised the boy`s
relatives to tell them about the couple`s whereabouts.

Following the development, the youth`s side informed the
police and the team went to the village to probe into the
matter, the official said.

Alleging that police took money from the boy`s family,
the girl`s family attacked the team.

A case has been lodged against members of the girl`s
family, police said.
