Bihar: Stones pelted from mosque during Durga idol immersion in Jehanabad, 14 people injured

The stone-pelting incident in Jehanabad is similar to the one that occurred in Balrampur in Uttar Pradesh recently in which members of the Muslim community had reportedly preplanned the stone-pelting and had stored the stones to target the Goddess Durga procession.

In yet another act of stone-pelting targeting Hindus, a Muslim mob attacked a Durga idol procession in Jehanabad district in Bihar on Thursday. The horrific attack on Hindus led to a curfew-like situation leading to the imposition of section 144 in the area.

According to the reports, around 6 am on Thursday, a group of Hindus carrying an idol of Goddess Durga for immersion were attacked by a mob, which pelted stones from terrace and rooftops of mosque with stones near Bihar Studio at Arval Modh. The sudden attack led to a stampede in which around a dozen people, including four policemen, were injured.
