JODHPUR: Following Monday’s clashes in Jodhpur in Rajasthan, stones were once again thrown by the two communities at Jalori Gate, forcing police to resort to charging lathi in the area after Eid prayers.
In the visuals, people can be heard brandishing slogans while engaging in rock throwing. The police tried to disperse the crowd. The situation is currently under control in the area, according to the police.
“The situation is under control and the flag march will take place. Measures will be taken in accordance with the law. Police personnel were slightly injured. Jodhpur told the media.
On Monday, a dispute arose over the replacement of the religious flag of one community in Balmukand Bissa, at the intersection circle of the Jalori gate, by that of another. People from the other community opposed this decision, which led to clashes.
Several people were also injured when rocks were thrown between the two communities on Monday night following the flag replacement incident. Meanwhile, the crowd also uprooted loudspeakers set up in the area for Eid prayers.
The Jodhpur district administration also temporarily suspended internet services in the district on Tuesday as a precautionary measure after Monday night’s clashes.
According to an order issued by Jodhpur Divisional Commissioner Himanshu Gupta, all internet services have been suspended in Jodhpur from 1am today.
