Monday’s violence in Dungarpur spread to Udaipur on Tuesday where hundreds of Muslims, protesting over the morphed pictures of a Muslim shrine on the social networking site, clashed with the police. At least 12 persons were injured after police resorted to baton charge to disperse the mob who pelted stones after violating Section 144 of CrPC.
“There were some miscreants who started pelting stones on the police. In order to maintain law and order, we had to use mild force. At least 12 persons including 6 policemen and ADM (city), ML Chauhan, were injured in the incident,” said a senior police officer.
He added that Section 144 was already in place in town but Muslims violated it and police asked them to disperse. But they started pelting stones on the police.
