The police registered a case on a fresh complaint of damage to a place of worship in Jagatsinghpur district of Orissa on Thursday, even as indefinite curfew was clamped in three gram panchayats of the district.
According to the police, damage was caused to a place of worship at Dhoti village under Tirtol police station on Wednesday.
The police also staged flag marches on Thursday morning in the areas placed under curfew following incidents of violence and arson between two communities earlier this week.
Ten platoons of armed police were maintaining vigil with senior police and district officials camping in the areas falling under Piteipur panchayat, district administration sources said.
Piteipur, Shanpur and Taradapada panchayats had witnessed violence and arson after people belonging to two communities clashed over ownership of a four-acre plot at Piteipur, which was used both for cremation and burial.
Around 20 houses and shops were torched after a place of worship at Piteipur was stoned on Monday.
