The Sanand police have arrested seven people in connection with an atrocity case. The seven accused were held on Monday and produced before a magistrate on Tuesday. The magistrate sent them to judicial custody.
Eighty year-old Danabhai Parmar of Bhavapura in Sanand, had filed a complaint a week back, alleging that Raman Thakore, Amrut Thakore, Kana Thakore, Raju Thakore, Kanti Thakore, Mahesh Thakore and Kama Thakore stormed into his house and assaulted him and his family members.
According to the case details, Kanti Thakore had hired Parmar’s nephew, Gautam, 30, as a driver some time back. Over time, Gautam had become intimate with Thakore’s family members and had allegedly developed illicit relations with his wife, Maya (name changed).
A source in the police said that the reason why Parmar’s family was assaulted was that Gautam’s alleged intimacy with Maya. When Maya’s husband came to know of this, he, along with six other people, had assaulted the driver and his family, the source said.
