Communal clashes, arson in Vadodara; police lob teargas shells

VADODARA: Police lobbed several teargas shells in Kumbharwad area of the city here on Thursday to control clashes between two different religious groups.

“Mobs belonging to different communities indulged in violent clashes, pelted stones at each other, set several vehicles on fire and damaged several shops,” police said.

“Stone pelting was reported from the area. The cause behind the incident is not known but apparently it was due to some photo circulated on the social media,” Vadodara Police Commissioner E Radhakrishnan said.

Radhakrishnan accompanied by senior officials rushed to spot to bring the situation under control. State Reserve Police and the Rapid Action Force teams have been deployed for maintaining law and order, the police said.
