Nagpur: A group of miscreants attacked a truck driver and four others with rods and stones as a dispute erupted during Ganesh immersion in Jaripatka area here on Tuesday. Four accused have reportedly been arrested in this connection.

The trouble started when the complainant, Gurbhel Singh Punarsingh Datle (42), resident of Samata Nagar, Jaripatka, was taking idol of Bappa in his Eicher truck (MH-40/DL 5319). Midway, Gurbhel Singh saw a big pothole on the road and hence stopped his truck.

But even before Gurbhel Singh could answer, the group of accused persons attacked Gurbhel Singh and four others namely Rinku, Shriram, Vivek and Vicky with wooden rod and stones.
