DHARAMSHALA, April 23: Leh city in Ladakh observed a peaceful shutdown today in condemnation of the brawl that took place on Saturday night between two groups of young men that led to the death of a youth.

Of the three injured in the brawl, one from the accused group is currently admitted in hospital but is in stable condition now.

The incident was swiftly proclaimed by the district administration and local authorities as an unfortunate incident involving young individuals in Ladakh, to dispel any communal tone it may acquire.

The brawl started at a café in Leh main bazaar. When it continued, the accused group of four young men called their friends for help. A fight broke out around 11:30 pm¬¬ outside the café where one of the friends stabbed another man.

The victim was taken to the hospital later where he succumbed to his injuries.

The police have arrested and detained seven young men in their early 20s from the accused group for further investigation.

“A case has been registered as FIR No 34/19 under Sections 302, 307, 324, 506 and 34 Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) at Police Station Leh,” revealed Leh district SSP Sargun Shukla at a press conference held on Monday.

The Ladakh Buddhist Association (LBA) President Tsewang Thinles on a call with Phayul called it a law and order situation and said the incident should not be referred to in any other terms.

Since the accused group is associated with Special Frontier Force (SFF) stationed in Ladakh, an army brigadier flew in from Delhi yesterday to hold a meeting with local leaders and promised to make disciplinary changes to prevent such incidents from happening again.

The parents and the leaders of the accused group have visited the parent of the deceased yesterday to offer condolence and support.

All major religious associations in the region along with Leh Merchant Association held a joint press conference at the Leh press club this afternoon to address the issue.

At the press conference, PT Kunzang, the LBA vice president called police patrolling into question as the incident took place in the middle the main bazaar area and observed that there is hardly any patrolling in the town after 6 pm.

“A thorough investigation should take place, and the accused should be punished as per the law,” he added.
