Sonbhadra Shooting: Gunshots, People Fall To Ground, Attacked With Sticks In Firing Videos 

New Delhi: Nearly a week after 10 people were shot dead in a dispute over land at Sonbhadra in Uttar Pradesh, two videos reveal the sheer horror of what went down on July 17.

The videos show the moments immediately before the massacre that has jolted the nation and led to a huge political controversy.

One of the videos shows a large contingent of tractors heading to the village where the killings took place. It emerged later that the village head, Yagya Dutt, accused of leading the shooting, took 200 armed men in 32 tractors.

In the other, more frightening video, a large number of men holding sticks are seen attacking villagers. Gunshots are also heard in the chaos. A man can be seen falling to the ground. Some men armed with lathis can be seen attacking those who fall to the ground.

"Call the police," a woman is heard screaming in panic.

The shooting took place for half-an-hour.

The police arrived half an hour after the shooting, which, too, erupted after what appeared to be a build-up.

The videos were reportedly shot by a villager present at the spot and circulated locally - they made their way to journalists this morning.
