15 hurt in Gujarat clash

August 29, 2004 17:43 IST

At least 15 people were injured, two of them seriously, in a clash between two communities at the remote Bakhar village in Mehsana district, Gujarat, on Sunday, police said.

"The situation is now well under control as police rushed to the spot in time and took necessary steps to maintain law and order," Mehsana District Superintendent of Police H G Patel said.

Patel said, "As per preliminary investigation, the son of a retired police official, who has a house in the village, had gone for some puja. He allegedly threatened some persons of the minority community after some scuffle had occurred and this triggered the clash."

Security was tightened following the incident, the official said.
