Community clashes break out; after stones hurled at ‘Tiranga Bike Rally’
Community clashes broke out leading to a young man losing life while another got critically injured in a western Uttar Pradesh town this morning.
The incident took place 170 km from the national capital Delhi when someone threw stones at a “Tiranga bike rally” passing through a locality in Uttar Pradesh’s Kasganj town.
The rally had been organised by the RSS-affiliated students’ group, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to commemorate Republic Day.
Police sources said that it is not so clear as to who threw the stones but it triggered violence that saw both sides hurling stones at each other.
Later, a mob went on a rampage burning down motorcycles, attacking other vehicles and also placed set fire to a place of worship.
The police have ordered traders to shut their shops, told people not to venture out of their homes and directed schools not to hold classes tomorrow as well.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has appealed for peace and ordered the officials to deal sternly with people trying to create trouble.>
