Stone pelting during immersion of Durga idols in Bihar’s Saran

After Begusarai and Aurangabad, communal tension gripped Bihar’s Saran district briefly when two communities engaged in stone pelting during immersion of Durga idols, sources said on Friday.

It started with a heated exchange of words between two communities over a trivial issue which snowballed into violence with both sides pelting stones at each other on Thursday evening. Five persons were injured in this incident in the Nayi Bazar area under the Bhagwan Bazar police station in the district.

Some idols of the Goddess were also damaged in the incident. On being informed, Saran SP Gaurav Mangla, DSP Sadar Santosh Kumar, and Bhagwan Bazar SHO Ranjit Kumar rushed to the affected area and brought the situation under control.
