A gang of people allegedly attacked a wedding party in Bhavnagar town Saturday night over an incident, killing one person and injuring three others.

The incident occurred about 10.45 p.m. on Saturday in a residential society in the Vadva district of Bhavnagar town, when a group of six allegedly attacked four people with knives and baseball bats, according to police.

Suraj Chauhan, a 25-year-old Palitana resident, was killed, while Vishal Chauhan, Nirav Chauhan, and Viren Chauhan were injured.

Nikunj Kambad, Parth Kambad, Ajay Marwadi, and Hitesh, all of Vadva, have been named as the suspects.

In his complaint, the Suraj's younger brother Viren Chauhan mentioned, "We came from Palitana to Bhavnagar town to attend the wedding of my niece. Around 10.30 pm, we were sitting outside Meldi temple where the ceremony was taking place. A group of persons led by Nikunj came to the spot and slapped my cousin Nirav asking why he was sitting over there."

"Later, the group left and my elder brother Suraj came when we told him about the incident. We then started looking for Nikunj's house and arrived at the end of the society where Nikunj and others started attacking us with bats. Later, Nikunj drew his knife and stabbed Suraj multiple times resulting in his death. He also stabbed me and two others," the complaint added.

On Sunday, police arrested four people at Nilambaug police station on allegations of murder, attempted murder, and rioting. So far, no arrests have been made.
