Five prisoners were injured in Gurugram’s Bhondsi jail after a fight broke out between the members of the noted Lawrence Bishnoi and Kala Jathedi gang and supporters of gangster Kaushal in Bhondsi jail, the police said on Friday.
Kaushal’s associate Anil alias Lath (31) was seriously injured in the clash and was admitted to the Gurugram Civil Hospital for further treatment, while four others – Umesh, Sachin, Sanjay and Sushil – were discharged after first aid, the police said.
