Noida, April 24 (IANS) A eunuch was critically injured after being shot at by members of a rival gang Friday apparently over a “territory” dispute, police said.
According to police, a group of eunuchs of the Atique gang, aiming to muscle into the “territory” of the Pappu group, shot at Rekha (32), who protested their entry into the phase II area. Rekha heads the group in the absence of Pappu, who is in jail.

Rekha sustained injuries in her abdomen and was rushed to Kailash Hospital, where doctors described her condition as “critical”.

According to the police, the two groups were operating in Ghaziabad and Noida - Pappu in Noida and Atique in Ghaziabad - and phase II in Noida had been fixed as the dividing line between the territories. However, the Atique group used to frequently enter Pappu’s territory.

Rekha claimed she had asked for security earlier, but the Noida police had denied her request.

Noida’s superintendent of police (city) A.K. Tripathi said a criminal case had been registered.
