Communal Clash arises during Deity immersion

A violent communal clash arose between communities after an idol of Goddess Durga was stoned and broken. This led to heavy stone pelting and injures to more than 12 people. 10 shops were razed and many more were lighted. Police and RAF arrived at the location in order to control the mob but it required blank firing to calm down. Additional forces have been stationed as a precaution. All other idols proceeding for immersion have been stopped. Section 144 has been imposed for a period of time.
