They were finally rushed to hospital by villagers.
The victims say in June 2016, they twice complained before Police Station Sundarbani that the retired police official was threatening to kill them to grab their land.
"But police dilly-dallied registration of FIR. Till finally these goons attacked us recently. Had the police acted then, this would not have been our plight," the family said.
The family said this time they complained before the police to file as case of attempt to murder. "But despite these grievous injuries to these poor persons we were asked to mellow down the case," said a lower rung-police official.
"The accused (former cop) has been booked under non serious offences vide FIR No 84 under section 447, 148,147 and 323," the police said adding a counter FIR has been filed against the poor family. The poor family said they have every risk to their life. The family appealed Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and the Director General of Police SP Vaid to personally look into the matter and initiate action against the erring cops who are "shielding killers."
Despite repeated attempts the accused former police official could not be contacted for comments.
