On Thursday evening, leaders of the two communities were invited for a ‘Peace meeting’. Departmental head LN Meena reportedly informed that there were adequate security arrangements in place for the Dussehra procession. Community leaders have reportedly condemned the violence and expressed regret.

On Tuesday, the Hindus in the town taking out a Dussehra procession were confronted by members of another community near a high Muslim concentration area near Saadat Chowraha. A heated argument broke out between two groups resulting in communal clashes as members of the community pelted stones at the procession of Hindus.

The stone-pelting and attack on the Dussehra procession had generated massive outrage in the town.

Protesting against the police’s failure to nab culprits responsible for the stone pelting, Hindus in the area, led by BJP MLA Kanhaiya Lal sat on a dharna outside the police station. The Ravan Dahan was also delayed. Finally, government officials and municipality staff had burned the Ravan effigy early on Wednesday morning. The police had imposed curfew and stopped internet services from Wednesday morning.
