Tensions erupted in Madhya Pradesh’s Dhar town on Tuesday morning after a large group of Muslims carrying out a procession on the occasion of Eid Milad un Nabi barged into a restricted area.
The incident is from Pinjarwadi locality in Dhar when a group of people, who were part of the procession, tried to force their way into the restricted area. They broke the police barricades and insisted on rerouting the procession through the restricted area.
When requested by the police to follow the pre-determined route, the group refused to budge and got into a scuffle with police personnel. The police had to resort to lathi-charge to disperse the unruly mob.
