Both sides had agreed to it, but some youths from both communities reached the spot and there was a disturbance. Additional police forces rushed to the spot after which the situation was brought under control.”

“The collector said that CCTV footage has been seen and ordered to identify and arrest the anarchic elements. Five years ago, the picture of Mother India was torn at this place, after which tension prevailed”, as reported by an online news portal.
