Raipur, Oct 28 (PTI) Two persons, one of them the son

of a local Congress leader, have been arrested for allegedly

driving a car into a group of villagers, killing a four-year-

old boy and injuring 12 others, in Gariaband village of

Chhattisgarh, police said on Wednesday.

According to the police, Romit Rathore (25), the son

of a local woman Congress leader, and his friend Saurabh

Kutare (26) were arrested on Tuesday.

The incident took place on Monday night in Malgaon

village under City Kotwali police station area, when villagers

were returning from a Dussehra celebration, said Sukhnandan

Rathore, additional superintendent of police, Gariaband.

Locals were walking in groups along the road after

celebrating Dussehra on the outskirts of the village, when one

of them accidently touched Rathore''s car, the official said.

This infuriated the accused, who, along with his

friends, entered into an argument with the villagers and drove

away after warning them, he said.

However, after going a few meters ahead, Rathore

returned and drove his speeding car into the crowd, killing

the boy and injuring 12 others, the official said.

The accused were apprehended from a forest near

Nagabudha village and have been booked under section 302

(murder), 307 (attempt to murder) and 34 (common intention) of

the IPC based on the complaint of a villager, the ASP said.

Four of the injured villagers have been shifted to

Raipur for treatment in view of their critical condition.

Locals had staged a protest and blocked Raipur-

Gariaband road for a few hours on Tuesday, demanding strict

action against the accused and compensation for the victims.
