Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPC are also in force in the area, where brick-batting and arson had taken place between two groups on Sunday evening, they said.
“Over 50 people, including state BJP leader Abhay Singh, have been arrested and further investigation is underway,” SSP Prabhat Kumar said, adding that
adequate police force has been deployed to maintain law and order.
Locals also complained of disruption of internet services, but there was no official comment on it.
Tension had been brewing in the area since Saturday night when members of a local organisation found a piece of meat wrapped in a Ram Navami flag, police said.
East Singhbhum District Deputy Commissioner Vijaya Jadhav had Sunday said some anti-social elements were trying to disturb peace.
Meanwhile, shops and other commercial establishments remained closed at most of the places in major cities of Chhattisgarh on Monday in the wake of the state-wide bandh called by right wing organisations against communal violence in Biranpur village of Bemetara district two days back.
