Youngsters ‘groups’ clash in Sonoghor, six stabbed
Booni — Six youngsters have been sent to jail for stabbing five youth of booni. The stabbing incident occurred in Sonoghor a few days ago in which five youths from Booni were injured. Three of the injured have been discharged from a hospital in Booni while two are still in a serious condition with their internal organs including intestines damaged.
Over a week ago, a group of youngsters from Booni had gone to Chuinj village in Mastuj to attend a musical programme where they had a scuffle with another group from Chinar village. Later when one of the youngsters from Chinar came to Booni he was allegedly harassed at the Booni bazaar by the group from Booni.
When the Chinar boy went home and informed his friends about the incident, they called the Booni group of youths and challenged them to come out of their hometown and face them.
As a result, both the groups moved towards each other’s villages and encountered each other at Sonoghor where the youngsters from Chinar beat and stabbed the boys from Booni. The injured were taken to Booni.
A jirga of the local elites failed to resolve the matter on Saturday and in the meanwhile six of the youths from Chinar were sent to jail.
It may be noted that youngsters in almost all villages have formed their groups and often clash with each other over petty issues. Sources told ChitralToday that there were 45 such groups in Booni alone.
These groups are named such as Bichhu (scorpion) group, magarmach group, Amir Khan (Indian actor) group, Undertaker group, John Cena group etc. — CN monitoring, credit chitraltoday.net, 25 Sep 2016
