Communal violence during Ram Navmi in Gujarat

A 65-year-old man was killed and another injured as communal clashes erupted in Gujarat’s Khambhat during a procession taken out on the occasion of Ram Navami on 10 April 2022. Clash had started when the procession was passing through Sakkarpur locality. Riots sparked off over a dispute over playing loud DJ music during the procession. After heated arguments between members of the two communities, miscreants in a group near a crematorium started pelting stones on the procession. Around five carts selling vegetables were also set on fire by the rioters. 85 people have been arrested for arson and stone-pelting. More than 20 houses and as many vehicles have been burnt.
