The Legal proceeding has been initiated against both the parties. 5 people from one party and 2 from the other have been arrested. It is requested from media outlets to not publish any unverified news.” 

The police also replied the same to Priyanka Gandhi's post.

They further posted a video in which they gave more information about the incident.  

The police official said the feud started over the cutting of crops between two Rajput parties on 4th November. Mainpuri Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Om Prakash Singh. “The claim that the victims were Dalits is false.” 

Rishi Kumar, Station House Officer, (SHO) Kurra said, “I do not know which case is under trial, but even if there is any case under SC/ST Atrocities Act, why would fight among Thakurs would ever be considered under that Act? This incident has been made political without any reason.”
