The law and order situation appears spinning out of control in Bihar’s Patna after a gunfight escalated into full-fledged violence. A minor dispute over a parking issue on Sunday led to a shootout between two groups killing two, and injuring three people. Reportedly, over 50 rounds were fired in broad daylight in a public place.

Following the incident, a group of people clashed with police and set fire to buildings in Jethuli village located in the Fatuha area on the outskirts of the capital city, where the accused resides. A house, a community hall, and vehicles belonging to the accused were set ablaze before police reached the spot to bring the situation under control.
