A constable was killed and six persons injured in a clash in Ramnagar between the alleged supporters of Anant Vikram Singh, the son of Congress MP Sanjay Singh, and police on September 14.


According to police, the clash took place as Anant Vikram's supporters gathered outside 'Bhupati Bhawan', the Singhs' ancestral house here, after hearing that the Congress MP and his wife Amita were to arrive in Amethi.


Anant Vikram occupies the residence with his mother and Sanjay Singh's first wife, Garima.


Sanjay Singh and his second wife Amita are locked in a dispute over the ancestral house with Anant Vikram and Garima.


Meanwhile, Sanjay Singh's daughter Shaivya Singh has alleged that the district administration is biased towards her father and Amita. She charged that Amita was responsible for the clash.
