Reasonable relatives managed to reconcile two warring neighbours in Kandal on Monday, but the truce proved only temporary.
Later that night, one of the offended parties swung by his adversary’s abode armed with an axe. In a feat of unrestrained rage, he began hacking at the walls of his enemy’s house, chopping holes in the structure.
The victim woke up to see the axe-wielding madman and understandably fled in fear, seeking help from police.
He told them this is the second time his nutty neighbour has taken an axe to his home.
