A violent clash erupted over water between residents of two villages in Hansi sub-division late Monday night. At least 12 persons, including panchayat members, were injured. Eight motorcycles and a pump set were set afire.

The residents of Dhani Peeranwali installed a motor pump to draw water from Puthi minor. Residents of nearby Puthi Mangal Khan village objected to it. They dispersed on being told Dhani Peeranwali had the  permission to do so, but returned in larger numbers. An argument led to a clash. The panchayats later met, but failed to sort out the matter. A case has been filed against 300-400 persons.

Water samples taken from schools fail test

As many as 20 samples taken from various schools in Fazilka have failed the quality test. Sources said the Water Supply and Sanitation Department had collected 49 samples in the past 15 days. However, 25 samples taken from water tanks in villages were found fit for consumption, they added. TNS
