Hyderabad: A 23-year-old Nigerian student received head injuries after a man in his neighbourhood hit him with a rod following a dispute over car parking.

According to police, on Wednesday night an argument broke out between Nigerian national Ghazeem and a resident of Singadabasti locality in Banjara Hills area, and Mohd Gafoor after the former parked his car in front of Gafoor’s building, despite he being told to park it in his own apartment complex.
