Stone pelting took place during Eid prayer

Clashes erupted between two communities when Shiv Sena workers were taking out a rally from nearby an Eidgah where Eid prayers where going on. According to sources, they shouted inflammatory slogans as the group neared the assembly of worshipers. Though the people tried to rub off the issue through dialogue, stone-pelting began from either side and then the situation turned into a proper riot. Vehicles were badly damaged in the process while people were left to fend for themselves. If this wasn't enough, the Police arrested people from the minority on the pretext of inciting violence. This partial behaviour has left the residents shuddering with fear. Prompted by the happenings, Chairman of Jamiat e Ulama Maharashtra Hafiz Nadeem Siddiqui spoke to the SP Yogesh Kumar, IG Prakash Mittal and the Collector Rojesh Jeevanshi of Hingoli district. They assured him of eliminating vice and getting hold of the perpetrators.
