Eleven persons were injured, two of them critically, when members of two families clashed at Rohini Rural Municipality of Rupandehi district on Wednesday evening.
Families of Manaur Ali Sheikh and Chotu Yadav at Bishunpur in the district began quarreling when Sheikh's family took exception to Yadav's spouse gossiping about Sheikh's son Umar's love affair in the village.
Police said the dispute took a heated turn and Sheikh's family attacked Yadav's family with spears. When neighbours moved in to settle the dispute, they too were injured in the melee.
Assistant Sub-Inspector Raju Babu Baniya informed the dispute began at around 7 pm. "When we reached the scene two hours later, there was bloodied people lying everywhere," said Baniya.
Three members of Sheikh's family and eight members of Yadav's family were injured in the incident.
