A 44-year-old man was seriously injured in a scuffle that broke out between two families in east Delhi’s Mandawali area over the disposal of a child’s soiled diapers, police said on Tuesday.

In a purported video of the Monday morning incident, members of the two families can be seen exchanging blows and a man brandishing a cleaver. Nakul got seriously injured in the attack and was rushed to a nearby hospital, they said.

According to the police, a call regarding the incident was received at 7.30 am. The fight broke out between the two families over the issue of disposing of a child’s soiled diapers on the stairs which were torn by dogs, they said.

“We got to know that the issue was ongoing between two neighbours — Nakul and Neeraj Kumar. We got to know that Nakul had asked Neeraj and his wife to not dispose of used diapers on the stairs and this enraged Neeraj,” a senior police officer said. On Monday, a verbal spat ensued between the two neighbours and Neeraj, in a fit of rage, attacked Nakul and injured him badly, the officer said.

“We are investigating the matter and legal action is being taken against both sides,” the officer said.
