Bihar: Stone pelting and communal violence during Tajiya procession in Kishanganj, 3 injured

According to a report in Prabhat Khabar, when the Tajiya procession was passing near a Durga Temple, some members from the group allegedly broke the barricade of a Durga Temple and started bursting firecrackers.

In Bihar’s Kishanganj district, three persons have been critically injured after a communal clash between a Muslim mob and a group of Hindus in Madhavnagar Mahadalit Tola on Thursday morning. As per a report in Prabhat Khabar, the locals of the Tola had raised an objection when the Muslim group taking Tajiya procession had broken the barricade of a Durga Temple to burst firecrackers.

As per reports, in Madhavnagar Mahadalit Tola, local Muslims had taken out a Tajiya procession on Thursday night. When the Tajiya procession was passing near a Durga Temple, some members from the group allegedly broke the barricade of a Durga Temple and started bursting firecrackers. Local Hindus in the area objected to it. After their objection, violent elements from the mob allegedly attacked the Hindus and started heavy stone-pelting.

As per a report in Prabhat Khabar, over a dozen people from both side have sustained injuries. However, three people, namely Gauri Devi, Deepak Nallik and a 12-year-old girl named Mishti have sustained critical injuries. All three have been admitted in the hospital. FIRs have been registered from both sides but the police are yet to arrest anyone. The police have been carrying out intense patrolling in the area to prevent any further violence.

Kishanganj DM Himanshu Sharma, Kumar Ashish and other officers reached there immediately to control the situation. DM Sharma had stated that the miscreants will be dealt with severely. He had also informed that a permanent police picket will be established in the area so there are no untoward situations in the future.

It is notable here that Kishanganj district falls between Nepal and West Bengal border and has long been a communally sensitive area.
