Neighbours file police complaints over noisy ceiling fan!


The humble ceiling fan has caused a fight between two neighbours in Vasna areas of Ahmedabad and the matter has now reached the police. As per the complaint registered with the cops, the ceiling fan of the neighbour who lived on the ground floor made so much noise that it disturbed the family living on the first floor. 

The first-floor family said the vibration of the ceiling fan led to constant tremors on the floor of the house. Both parties have filed a cross-complaint in the matter.


The fight is between Meenakshi Kayasth and Pradip Joshi, both residents of Kankavati Flats in Vasna behind the P&T Colony. A fight erupted over the alleged nuisance of a ceiling fan and even locals tried to intervene but to no avail. 

Both families threatened each other and finally, the cops had to intervene. Joshi in his complaint alleged that the fan in Kayasth’s house was leading to tremors on his floor. 

It also caused a ruckus robbing them of peaceful sleep. The woman’s family wanted to know how can a ceiling fan disturb the family above the floor. Both have filed complaints against each other.
