As soon as the news of the killings of the two men broke, firing ensued between members of the two rival clans, resulting in injuries to four women who were then shifted to a hospital. 

Police, however, preferred to stay away from the scene, turning the entire area into a ‘No-Go’ area, and raising fears of more bloodshed.
